How are healthcare services in Riga?

Answer this Question

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

"Healthcare services in Riga, are provided through a mix of public and private facilities, offering a range of medical services to residents and visitors. The public healthcare system is funded by the government and provides essential medical services, including primary care, specialist consultations, hospital care, and emergency services. Public hospitals and clinics in Riga are equipped with modern medical equipment and staffed by qualified healthcare professionals. In addition to public healthcare facilities, Riga also has a growing number of private clinics and hospitals that offer a wide range of medical services, including dental care, cosmetic surgery, and diagnostic services. These private facilities often provide a higher level of comfort and personalized care compared to public hospitals, but they can be more expensive. Pharmacies are widely available throughout Riga, offering both prescription and over-the-counter medications. Many pharmacists are able to communicate in English and can provide advice on minor health issues. Emergency medical services in Riga are accessible by dialing 112, which connects callers to the appropriate emergency service, including ambulance, fire, and police. Ambulance services are generally efficient and well-equipped, but response times may vary depending on the location and time of day. While the quality of healthcare services in Riga is generally good, it is important for visitors to have adequate travel health insurance, as public healthcare services may not be free for non-residents. Additionally, it is recommended to carry a personal medical kit and a list of emergency contacts when traveling in Riga," wrote a member who made the move to Riga, Latvia.
