FAST-TRACK MEDICAL DIRECTORY
Assistència Sanitària has created a fast-track medical directory comprising 400 doctors covering 20 different specialist areas, with the aim of reducing the time that insured have to wait for an appointment.

This directory has been created with a clear view to continuous improvement in the quality of healthcare, as in some cases of certain illnesses a need has been detected to make appointments with the appropriate professionals available in a shorter time than usual.

In order to achieve this, a maximum wait of 48 hours has been established for patients that request this service from doctors included in the directory. This involves the formal commitment on the part of these professionals to programme all fast-track appointment requests they receive on the same day or the next working day at the latest.

Initially the fast-track medical directory includes the following specialities:

 
NEPHROLOGY DERMATOLOGY
GENERAL MEDICINE ENDOCRINOLOGY AND NUTRITION
AL·ALLERGOLOGY INTERNAL MEDICINE
VASCULAR SURGERY NEUROSURGERY
CARDIOLOGY NEUROLOGY
DIGESTIVE SYSTEM OPHTHTALMOLOGY
PNEUMOLOGY TRAUMATOLOGY
GENERAL AND DIGESTIVE SURGERY OTORHINOLARYNGOLOGY (ENT)
PAEDIATRIC SURGERY RHEUMATOLOGY
MAXILLOFACIAL SURGERY UROLOGY


 

To access this service, all you have to do is select a doctor from the directory who is identified as a member of the fast-track service and request an appointment by telephone in the usual way, specifying that it is a fast-track appointment.

The doctors included in the fast-track directory offer this service when necessary, as an additional service to those they have been offering usually, and therefore the programming of routine and follow-up appointments should not be affected.
