How are healthcare services in Tallinn?

Answer this Question

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

"Tallinn, the capital city of Estonia, boasts a well-developed healthcare system that offers a wide range of services to its residents and visitors. The city is home to numerous public and private hospitals, clinics, and medical centers that provide high-quality medical care, including general practitioners, specialists, and emergency services. The healthcare system in Tallinn is based on a social insurance model, where residents are required to have health insurance through the Estonian Health Insurance Fund (EHIF). This insurance covers most medical services, including primary care, specialist consultations, hospital care, and prescription medications. Additionally, the EHIF also covers dental care for children and partially for adults. In Tallinn, patients can access primary healthcare services through general practitioners (GPs) who serve as the first point of contact for medical concerns. GPs can provide consultations, prescribe medications, and refer patients to specialists if necessary. Specialist care is available in various fields, such as cardiology, dermatology, gynecology, and psychiatry, among others. Emergency medical services in Tallinn are available 24/7 and can be accessed by calling the emergency number 112. The city has several hospitals equipped with emergency departments to handle urgent medical situations. Ambulance services are also available for transportation to hospitals in case of emergencies. In addition to public healthcare facilities, Tallinn also has a growing number of private clinics and hospitals that offer a wide range of medical services. These private facilities often have shorter waiting times and may provide more personalized care, but they typically come with higher costs compared to public healthcare services. Overall, healthcare services in Tallinn are modern, efficient, and easily accessible, ensuring that residents and visitors can receive the medical care they need," said another expat in Tallinn, Estonia.
