Abstract: Access to health care is considered to be of great importance for a person’s right to health. This paper attempts to highlight the spatial disparities in access to and use of rehabilitation services across Imathia’s area in Northern Greece. Our study is being focused on one defined geographical area, Imathia, in Macedonia in northern Greece. We defined a public general hospital as a local National Health System institution providing health services for the purpose of rehabilitation concerning patients with musculoskeletal disorders. The implementation of data included descriptive and concluding statistical processing. The spatial data was visualized in points and polygons. Most patients (60.5%) are from areas near to the hospital which means that there, is more concentration. The research focuses on spatial disparities and does not deal with their causes. As a consequence these findings raise important research questions for future investigation.
