Serviço Nacional de Saúde (SNS)

Serviço Nacional de Saúde (SNS), which is the National Health Service in Portugal.

The SNS is responsible for providing healthcare services to Portuguese residents. To access healthcare services under the SNS, individuals are typically required to have a user card known as the "Cartão do Utente" or "Cartão Nacional de Saúde" (CNS). This card is not referred to as an "SNS number" but serves as an identification card for healthcare purposes.

To obtain a Cartão do Utente or CNS, you would generally need to follow these steps:

Register with the local healthcare center (Centro de Saúde) nearest to your place of residence. You may need to provide identification documents, proof of residence, and other relevant information.
After registering, you will typically receive an appointment for a consultation with a healthcare professional. During this consultation, you can request the Cartão do Utente or CNS.
The healthcare professional will guide you through the process and provide you with the necessary forms to fill out.
Once the forms are completed, they will be processed, and you will be issued a Cartão do Utente or CNS. This card will include your personal information and a unique identification number.
Please note that procedures may vary slightly depending on the region and local healthcare center. It's advisable to contact your local Centro de Saúde or SNS office directly for the most accurate and up-to-date information.
