How to Access the Services

SSN (NHS) – In agreement wiht the National Health Service. Due to the limited number of performances that the Santa Lucia Foundation is authorized to provide in agreement with the NHS, this access mode is only available to people exempt from NHS-Fee (priority for the weaker segment of the population) and to people under the age of 30 (priority for the economical weaker segment of the population). In some cases the access to NHS performances can follow other criteria (i.e. priority to oncological patients). This option requires a prescription from your primary physician. You cannot choose your specialist.

SIMP – Simple solution offered by the Santa Lucia Foundation as alternative to the National Health Service (SSN). Cost to the patient is comparable to the ticket for NHS performance. This option does not require a prescription from your primary physician. You cannot choose your specialist.

ATTENTION: some clinical performances should be accessible only in some of the modalities listed above and not in all.
