Summary: The quality of medical care in France is generally considered to be very high. France has a universal healthcare system that provides access to medical care for all citizens, and the country is known for its excellent doctors and hospitals. Emergency services in France are also very reliable and efficient. In the event of an emergency, you can call the national emergency number, 112, to request an ambulance.
