How are healthcare services Madrid?

When we asked expats and global nomads about the quality of medical care in Madrid, they replied:

"Madrid offers a wide range of healthcare services to its citizens. The public healthcare system is managed by the Ministry of Health, Social Services and Equality and is available to all residents of Madrid. The public system provides access to general practitioners, specialists, hospitals, and emergency services. Private healthcare is also available in Madrid, with a variety of private clinics and hospitals offering a range of services. Private healthcare is often more expensive than public healthcare, but it can provide more personalized care and shorter wait times. Madrid also has a number of specialized healthcare centers, such as the National Center for Oncological Research, which provides cancer treatment and research. Additionally, Madrid has a number of mental health services, including counseling and therapy," commented one expat who moved to Madrid.
