    How to seek medical attention in Europe


    If you’’re travelling in Europe this summer, it’’s a good idea to do some research before you travel. If you do need medical assistance for travel accidents, it’’s wise to be aware of what to do, and who to call… how to seek medical attention in Europe.

    What to do if you need to seek medical attention in Europe

    If you’’re travelling abroad this summer, hopefully, you won’’t need to seek medical attention in Europe. However, if you sustain travel injuries, or you’’re involved in a holiday accident, there are places and people that can help.

    If you’’re a UK citizen, you’’re entitled to seek medical attention in Europe, which should be provided free of charge or at a discounted rate if you have a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). This card is free, and you can apply online or by completing a form at your local post office. Your card will have details of your name, your National Insurance Number and your nationality.

    If you have an accident overseas and you need medical attention in Europe, visit the nearest hospital or call the emergency services. Find out the emergency number for the
    country you’’re visiting before you travel. If you don’t know it, call 112. This is a universal emergency number, which works in most countries.

    Your EHIC card should cover any treatment you require before you are due to go home. If you need follow-up treatment and you are fit to travel, this will be provided back home.

    If you need treatment which is not covered by the EHIC card, or you don’’t have a card, you may be able to claim the cost of your care on your travel insurance. Check the details of your policy carefully before you contact your insurance provider if you’’ve had an accident abroad.
