What is the NHS Card and how to obtain it?

The National Health Service Card is a document that proves the identity of its holder to the institutions and services that form part of the NHS. This document should be presented for health care treatment, requesting auxiliary diagnostic and therapeutic means, prescribing and obtaining medication.
All foreigners having residency authorisation.
To obtain the NHS card foreigners must show in the health services in their area of residence, documentation proving their residence authorisation in national territory, according to the situations.
 
The NHS card, in your form, can be obtained in the Health Centre in your area of residence.
 
Health Centres are placed by residential areas. People should go to the one in their area of residence and find out about consultation hours, types of services, referral hospitals and available diagnostic services.
The Health Centre in your residence area issues to immigrants with a regular situation, a form with the Health Card, that must be presented every time in a Health Centre or at any other health service.
