Hospital – “Ospedale di Cona” (A&E is here: “Pronto Soccorso”)
Via Aldo Moro, 8 44124 Cona. The hospital has recently moved from the centre of Ferrara to a village just outside called Cona. It is sign posted from all sides of the city but from our school, for example, it would take a good 15 minutes to get there.
Ferrara’s Guardia Medica – Tel: 840 000 911
The “Guardia Medica” is a service run by some of Ferrara’s qualified doctors who take turns to work outside normal surgery hours. Telephone this number if you need a doctor (but it is not an emergency) and only if your own GP’s surgery is closed. The Guardia Medica is available from 8pm to 8am in the week and at weekends. A doctor will also visit you at home if necessary. This service is free and no ticket is needed.
