The hotline Saúde 24 changed. Now it is called SNS 24 and is part of the new holistic vision for the Portuguese National Health Service. Apart from allowing patients to schedule appointments with doctors, the SNS 24 reduces a large amount of waiting time spent on hospital emergencies, through a careful telephone triage that, in case of need, directs the patients to the appropriate medical care. That’s why, before anything else, you should dial 808 24 24 24.
