The number of family health centres in the Algarve is to expand this year.

During 2018, four new centres opened, in Lagos, Portimão, Albufeira and Faro, and at least another two could open this year.

Last year the Algarve recruited the greatest number of family doctors ever for the region, with 24 of 27 available placements being filled, and 89 percent of Algarve residents now having a general practitioner assigned to them.
