Health Care

Gibraltar is a British Crown Colony and UK citizens are entitled to free of charge treatment in public wards at St Bernard’s Hospital and at Casemates Health Centre on presentation of a UK passport during stays of up to 30 days in the colony. Other EU nationals are equally entitled on presentation of Form E111. Medical treatment in a different place and prescribed medicines must be paid for. Dental treatment should also be paid for but extractions are undertaken for a small charge at St Bernard’s Hospital during normal weekday working hours.


Passengers travelling from Gibraltar to Spain or Morocco are advised to refer to the Health sections for those countries.
