Emergency Medical Care in Charleroi

Actually, where I live, there are a few clinics and hospitals nearby, ex Hospital of Lobbes, Jolimont, Tivoli, Notre Dame etc. Emergency services are good and quick, I have been in the hospital of Jolimont and the care could not been better. There are some private clinics but I always use the public services.

Quality of Healthcare in Surrounding Area

Never done that.

Prescription Medicines

Usually medicines are available, when not, they ask you to come back the same day later and they will order it for you, no additional cost. I get my medications in the pharmacie, close where I live, there is a good pharmacies network, the bad part is they only open until 6 pm sometimes 7 pm. After that, you have to look for the pharmacie on duty in your area. Medications have an extra cost when you buy them in extra-time. You always need a prescription for medications, there are few exceptions like some analgesics creams, etc, things than are currently classified as no-risk for health. The cost I find it normal, less expensive than in my country.
