Your local public health centre, run by CatSalut, part of the Catalunya regional government, is your gateway to Spanish public healthcare and support if related to a short-term or long-term medical condition or disability. It is also a route to applying for social care where the need is linked to a medical condition being treated by doctors at the health centre. In the event the doctor or healthcare professional does not speak English and you do not speak Spanish or Catalan, there is a system of confidential telephone interpreters that can be called by staff at the centre.
