What are medical services in Tallinn like?

Answer this Question

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

"Medical services in Tallinn, are generally of high quality, with well-equipped hospitals and clinics. The city has both public and private healthcare facilities, staffed by skilled and professional medical personnel. Many doctors and nurses in Tallinn speak English, making communication easier for foreign patients. The public healthcare system is funded through the Estonian Health Insurance Fund, which covers most medical services for residents. However, waiting times for non-emergency treatments can be long in public hospitals. Private healthcare facilities offer faster access to medical services, but at a higher cost. Emergency medical services are available 24/7, and the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) is accepted for emergency treatments for EU citizens. It is recommended for visitors to have travel insurance to cover any potential medical expenses," explained one expat living in Tallinn, Estonia.
