General surgery or vascular surgery, internal medicine, endocrinology and pneumology, paediatrics or psychiatry are areas where some of the most prevalent diseases in the country are followed, to which HBA gives a differentiated and integrated response, in due time and with the quality already nationally and internationally recognized.

This is the cover theme of the new edition of the magazine “Informação Luz Saúde Beatriz Ângelo” (Information Luz Saúde Beatriz Ângelo), published by HBA, which also highlights the importance of colorectal cancer screening, promoting the program in development in Loures and Odivelas, which results from a cooperation between this Hospital and health centres of the region, in the scope of the Local Health Plan.
