EHIC card a must for all travellers

AS the main holiday season approaches, can I urge Irish Independent readers who are travelling to anywhere in Europe to ensure they apply for the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) before they travel. It was previously know as the E111 card.

I was taken ill in Malaga at the end of April; I had an operation and was in the top-class Malaga University Hospital for a week. The treatment I received was outstanding and really puts the Irish health system to shame.

They were not interested in my private insurance, just my EHIC card number for payment.
