How to get a medical appointment or treatment at SJD?

Before arranging an appointment at SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital, our medical team must assess the case. To do this the Healthcare for international patients form must be completed.

Our International Patients Department will contact you to ask for the current medical report and additional tests (imaging, analyses, etc.) You may also send us any audiovisual document (photo or video) that shows the patient's current condition. 

It is very important that the reports and test results are recent for our specialists to appropriately assess each case.

Following evaluation by our medical team, which may take between three to five days, we will send you a detailed treatment proposal and an economic assessment.
