Medical Facilities

Healthcare in Montserrat is free for children and senior citizens and is generally considered to be adequate, but many major conditions cannot be treated on island, so patients are often referred to our neighbouring island Antigua. It is best to check before booking your trip to Montserrat, if you or a member of your party have a requirement for treatment while on holiday here.

If staying in a hotel, villa or other self-catering accommodation, just pick up the telephone book and you will find a listing for doctors, dentists and eye care professionals.
