Perhaps a less known service offered is that of an English speaking heath professional that will help and guide you through Hospital appointments. Although I have a basic level of Portuguese, the reassurance of having someone with me for a recent appointment at Faro hospital was immense. Not only could they translate when needed but they were also there to meet me, show me where to go and basically hold my hand through the whole registration process of my appointment. This affordable service was not only a great help but gave me complete peace of mind during a very stressful time. Can’t rate this highly enough. Thank you
