Gibraltar Healthcare
 
 
 

The standard of healthcare in Gibraltar is excellent. Many of the medical professionals have studied and trained abroad, usually in the UK. The hospitals are equipped with the latest facilities and equipment and most conditions can be treated without the need for seeking healthcare elsewhere. Historically, the hospital was organised along religious lines with Catholic, Protestant and Jewish wards.

Gibraltar has its own health authority which provides healthcare facilities. There is a community hospital, residential care for the elderly, a referral hospital and a mental health unit. They run the Group Practice Medical Scheme which covers the medical needs of contributors. All medical treatment that is required is arranged through this scheme.

All Gibraltarians are entitled to free healthcare in public wards and clinics at the hospital and primary healthcare centre. All other British citizens are also entitled to free of charge treatment on 'The Rock' on presentation of a valid British passport during stays of up to 30 days. Other EU nationals are equally entitled to treatment on presentation of a valid European Health Insurance Card. Dental treatment and prescribed medicines are free of charge for Gibraltarian students and pensioners. First-line medical and nursing services are provided at the Primary Care Centre, with more specialised services available at St Bernard's Hospital. Psychiatric care is provided by King George V Hospital. Patients requiring medical treatment not available on Gibraltar receive it as private patients paid for by the Government of Gibraltar either in the UK, or more recently in Spain.
