What are emergency services like in Istanbul?

Answer this Question

When we asked members about emergency services in Istanbul, they wrote...

"Emergency services in Istanbul, are similar to those in other major cities, providing assistance in cases of medical emergencies, fires, and police matters. To call for an ambulance, you would need to dial the emergency number, which is 112. This number connects you to the emergency medical services, and operators are available to assist you in both Turkish and English. Once you provide the necessary information, an ambulance will be dispatched to your location to provide medical assistance and transport to a hospital if needed," explained one expat living in Istanbul, Turkey.

"There are several hospitals near where I live. These however are private ones. I myself use Baskent University hospital, which I have found very good. Also their prices are more reasonable than some of the others. The care I received there has been first class. Also there is no long waiting time if you require an operation. As for emergency services, my wife received treatment with only a short wait to see a doctor, apart from that I cannot say," said another in Istanbul, Turkey.
