What are healthcare services like in Patras?

Answer this Question

We asked retirees if they have access to good medical care in Patras. They wrote...

"Healthcare services in Patras are generally of a high standard, with a mix of public and private healthcare facilities available. The city is home to the University Hospital of Patras, one of the largest hospitals in the country, providing a wide range of medical services. There are also numerous smaller clinics and health centers throughout the city. Public healthcare in Patras is funded through social security and is available to all residents. However, it's worth noting that public hospitals can sometimes be crowded and waiting times can be long. On the other hand, private healthcare in Patras is known for its high-quality service and shorter waiting times. Many doctors and medical staff in private facilities are fluent in English and other languages, making it easier for expats and tourists. Pharmacies are widely available throughout the city, and many are open 24 hours. They are well-stocked and staffed by knowledgeable pharmacists who can provide advice and over-the-counter medications. Emergency medical services in Patras are reliable, with ambulances equipped with modern medical equipment. The emergency number in Greece is 112, and operators can usually speak English. Despite the high standard of healthcare, it's recommended for visitors to have comprehensive health insurance to cover any potential medical costs. Overall, Patras offers a robust healthcare system with a variety of services to meet the needs of its residents and visitors," wrote a member who made the move to Patras, Greece.
