Health care system of Portugal at its current stage of development is under the control of the Sanitary National System (SNS) comprised of five sectors: the network of state hospitals, regional health services, private medical centres, the National Institute for Medical emergencies, and the network of state-licensed private drugstores.

Portuguese authorities are actively restructuring health care system with the aim of creating balance between the state and private sector, as well as improving the quality of medical service provision. By the estimates of the World Health Organization, each year Portugal is confidently moving up the rating list of world countries by many medical indices (level of emergency aid, rendered medical services, technical facilitation, etc.)

Doctors regularly update their professional skills in the Netherlands, Belgium, England, Sweden, and the USA. Doctors and medical personnel of most Portuguese clinics located in major cities (Lisbon, Porto, Faro, Amadora, Braga, Setúbal) speak English, Portuguese, French, German, Swedish, Russian, and Ukrainian languages. Overseas patients receive guaranteed individual approach in treatment as well as care and attention on the part of medical personnel.

Private medical centres complement the state health care service and are extremely popular today among foreign citizens, especially from Germany and the UK.

Treatment procedures may last from several hours to several days, with applying advanced technologies (controlled 3-D ultrasonic micro-vibrations, invisible brace systems, 3D-systems).
