If you do feel under the weather then your first port of call should be the local chemist (farmacia) - there are several in the area, all marked on the map. All are helpful and speak good English and they will usually advise a remedy, or if a visit to the doctor is necessary.
If you are covered by holiday or private insurance for medical treatment, then one of the private surgeries is the place to go. Do keep all your receipts for medical treatment and medication to enable you to make an insurance claim on your return home.
The National Health clinic (Ibsalut) is situated in Alcudia Old Town on the Carretera Formentera and you can receive treatment there if you have a European Health Card (which has replaced the old E111).
Take the original form and a photocopy of it, and your passport with you. The telephone number of the National health clinic is 971 549 777. There is also a basic National Health Clinic in Puerto Alcudia on Calle Ciutadella No.7. Telephone 971 548 056.
There is a private hospital in Playa de Muro (Calle Veler No.1). Telephone: 971 891 900. Visit their website at: www.hgm.es
If you require an ambulance in an extreme emergency then ring the police on 092 or the Helpline on 112 and they will make the arrangements. You may well be asked to pay the cost of the ambulance when it arrives, so make sure you have some cash available.
