Spain, the third largest country in Western Europe with a population close to 47 million has one of the highest ratio of physicians per habitant in the world.  Global health indicators in Spain have been improving steadily since the 1970s to the extend that the average life expectancy is today one of the highest globally. In year 2000 the World Health Organisation (WHO) published a ranking of the best healthcare systems in the world and Spain was ranked 7th.


"There is more to Spain than bullfights, flamenco music and dance, exotic beaches and plenty of sunshine. The past few years have seen Spain gain prominence for its excellent medical system that offers low-cost and quality medical treatment for patients from all over the globe.

The Spanish healthcare system has improved in leaps and bounds and currently is something of which both the administration and the practitioners can be justifiably proud. US and UK patients stand to benefit much from the vast medical offerings that Spain offers.”
