Guidance for visitors from UK
IKA has a reciprocal agreement with the British National Health Service. British visitors to Greece should obtain a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) before leaving the UK (the EHIC has replaced the old form E111 and is available free of charge through most UK post offices or through the UK Department of Health via their website at: www.dh.gov.uk or by telephoning 0870 155 5455 and obtaining their leaflet “Health Advice for Travellers”. The EHIC is not a substitute for medical and travel insurance, but entitles you to emergency medical treatment on the same terms as Greek nationals. You will not be covered for medical repatriation, on-going medical treatment or treatment of a non-urgent nature.
The Public Ambulance Service, (Tel no: 166) will normally respond to any accident.
