The public health system in Spain is provided to all of Spaniards under a tax-financed scheme by INSALUD (Instituto Nacional de Gestion Sanitaria). INSALUD has similarities with the UK's National Health Service in terms of quality of health available since both are incredible high.

In Spain, over 90% of the population uses this system for their medical needs. In this scheme, the citizens are allowed to choose their primary care doctor; although they get to see their primary care doctor within a day or two. Generally INSALUD pays for all medical care.

If the patients want to consult a specialist, they must first be referred by their primary care doctor; except in emergencies. Lastly, Spain public system only covers medical care; Dental and eye care are covered privately.

For citizens of the UK and other EU member states the Spanish state health care scheme INSALUD is free or subsidized depending on the type of health care required. Citizens of EU need to obtain form E-111 from their doctor to gain access to public medical services in Spain.

In Spain, all public hospitals provide emergency services on a 24-hour basis. Most of public hospitals in Spain have the most advanced technology to provide highly specialized services.
