São Brás guarantees “family doctors for all”

The hiring of a new doctor for São Brás de Alportel’s health centre has ensured that everyone who lives in the small central Algarvean town and is enrolled in Portugal’s National Health Service (SNS) now has access to a family doctor.

“This is a very positive achievement for our citizens and the municipality, which continues to welcome new residents from other parts of the country and abroad,” the council said in a statement.

The health centre now boasts a team of seven family doctors.
