When we asked members about emergency services in Portugal, they wrote...

"ClinicaCUF is a company of health care providers, with clinics in each major town between Lisbon and Cascais, and beyond....one is never more than a couple of kilometers from a clinic if living in a major city. Hospital care at the Cascais Hospital is world-class. Both ClinicaCUF and Cascais Hospital accept private and state-insured patients. ," remarked another expat in Cascais, Portugal.

"Emergency services in Portugal are generally reliable and efficient. In the event of an emergency, the best way to call for an ambulance is to dial 112, the national emergency number. This number is free of charge and can be dialed from any phone, including mobile phones. The operator will then connect you to the appropriate emergency service, such as an ambulance, fire brigade, or police," said a member in Portugal.
