Your local public health centre, run by Murcia Salud, part of the Murcia 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. While some staff do speak some English, this cannot always be guaranteed so it is advisable to take a Spanish speaker or interpreter for appointments if needed.

Click on the main town / municipal area where you live (the council area you come under) and a list of health centres (centros de salud) comes up. Those called ‘consultorios locales’ (local surgeries) tend tot have shorter opening times than the larger health centres (centros de salud).
Click on the name of each health centre to get a full page of information about it, including the nearest out of hours emergency centre. Health centres generally open from 8am to 3pm and many have 24-hour coverage for emergencies. NB: your larger town may be a little way away from you but there may be a local centre closer.
