*The following list of hospitals, clinics and services has been compiled to assist participants who require medical services; and while every effort has been made to only include the names of organizations and individuals with favorable reputations, CIEE Seville assumes no responsibility nor liability for the activites of the entities and persons listed.
Pharmacies (farmacias) are usually the first choicefor the treatment of any non-urgent symptoms or basic health needs. If you do not need to see a doctor, but simply need advice about the appropriate over-the-counter medication, then consulting with the local pharmacist is the quickest, easiest (and cheapest) solution and readily available as there is a specially-designated 24-hour pharmacy in each neighborhood (farmacia de guardia). Please consult the following website for a list of open pharmacies – including 12-hour phamarmacies and/orrotating 24-hour pharmacies known as "farmacia de guardia".
If you have a mild condition (cold, flu, stomachproblems, etc.) or feel that you must see a physician, we suggest one of the two following medical centers, as same-day appointments are usually quick, easy, and relatively cheap - approx. 60€ for a general practice physician and approx 80-100€ for a specialist - payable in cash or by credit card. It is STRONGLY recomended that you call ahead and request an appointment, otherwise you might have to wait several hours for the next available opening. Please keep in mind, that health centers are open Monday -Friday during normal business hours and therefor closed evening, weekend and public holidays.
