Expat Healthcare Advice

There are doctors clinics for general health issues that are easy to use as (for instance) if you need an ex-ray for a problem, it is done there within minutes and you then see the doctor again and the results and treatments are discussed. There is no need to book an appointment and the total cost of a visit such as this is approximately 40 Bulgarian Lev to include the ex-ray. Medication is then prescribed and it is very affordable compared with the UK.

Emergency Medical Care

There are 2 hospitals that I am aware of in Pleven where we shop, and one is military and the other public. Both are helpful, efficient and affordable, also attention is immediate with very little waiting time.

Quality of Healthcare in Surrounding Area

I have not done this so can't comment, I do understand that the quality of service is good, and that the family members of a patient are to help in taking care of the patient (where applicable( with feeding and general care. Otherwise, I understand that the quality of care is varied, but in general, good!

Prescription Medicines

Yes, all medicines are available either directly from the chemist for deregulated medicines, or by prescription which can be obtained from the doctors clinic for under 5 Bulgarian Lev's. We need to travel about 18 kilometers to Pleven from where we live, but the rest is easy. In the UK, getting an appointment is not easy and you might have to wait a week or two, whereas in Bulgaria, you just go and receive attention right away without any fuss.
