You will be delighted to learn that should you need any sort of assistance, medical or otherwise i.e. a bad hair day, then help is just around the corner.
The medical care in Mallorca, whether you are using the National Health Service or Private Medical care is of the highest standard.
Most people will remember the E111 form which you could pick up from your local Post Office, well it has now been replaced by the European Health Insurance Card, or EHIC. This will allow you medical treatment at reduced cost, or free in some cases, in any member country of the EEC.
The EHIC is also now available from most post offices and medical centres in the UK. It is important to make sure that this is completed before you embark on your holiday.
Of course it is always recommended that you take out private travel insurance when travelling abroad, no matter where, which normally costs just a few pounds. Private clinics in Mallorca normally have English speaking staff available, whereas National Health facilities may have only one or two members of staff available to translate for you. When possible avoid companies where you have to pay for the treatment and claim it back as costs can run quite high. This would be an additional expense and headache which you can well do without in an emergency situation.
There are a large variety of professional specialists in Mallorca including Dermatology, Osteopathy, Gynaecology, Paediatrics and Urology. Many doctors work for the National Health Service as well as having thriving private practices.
There are also numerous dentists around Mallorca and prices seem to be cheaper than private dental treatment in the UK. Several dentists on the island have private insurance schemes and these are well worth checking out.
You will find British dentists in most resorts but if not please don't worry you will find that the majority of dentists in Mallorca speak English.
Basic dental treatment can be carried out as well as cosmetic work including crowns, implants, bridges, inlays and veneers. We all need to take care of ourselves and our bodies, whether holidaying or living in Mallorca. Apart from general medical care there are numerous health professionals such as chiropodists in most resorts, along with professionals who provide a more holistic approach and alternative health care options.
