The primary Card centre (CAP) is assigned according to the place of residence or if you belong to any specific group.

Depending on your place of residence, you belong to a specific basic healthcare area (ABS). The ABS are regional demarcations used by CatSalut, the Catalan Health Service, to organize primary healthcare services.

The provision of primary healthcare for the population of the same ABS is assigned to a primary healthcare team (EAP) comprised of general practitioners, paediatricians, dentists, nurses, nursing assistants, social workers and non-healthcare personnel.

With this app, and with your health card's personal identification code (CIP), you can find out to which CAP you are assigned and its contact details.
