Hi thanks for the information, we moved here in January & we have done our residency we live just outside Olhao eastern Algarve would you by any chance know where we would go to register please



The health centre in Olhão is hell on earth. See a Doctor privately and get prescription. International Clinic in Ria Shopping is good. Clinic Etienne is more expensive but Dr Remco Holst is great. You can also see him in Siipemor in Saõ Bras. Ask about a loyalty card in both.

Hi, I recently moved to Olhão and have just managed to do this. Provided that you are in the Olhão area, once you have your S1, and the other documents mentioned, you need to go to the SS office near the Fire Station in Olhão. They then send off all the documents to somewhere central. They told me it would be about a month before I heard, in fact it was 7 weeks for my husband, and when mine didn't arrive I went back to SS where they printed it off. This form gives you a Social Security number. You need to go with this and all the other documents to the Centro de Saude where they will then give you your SNS number, which is the equivalent of an NHS one. We have not yet been given a GP but can see whoever is on duty that day. They had trouble in the health centre understanding my best Portuguese, but fortunately there is a receptionist called Vera who was very helpful. Good luck.

You won't be assigned a GP. You simply see whoever is on duty.
