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

"Yes, there are many excellent hospitals in Turkey, with there being no waiting to see a doctor, or to have an operation. An ever growing amount of people come to Turkey for operations as the costs here are very reasonable compared to those in the UK. I personally have had two operations here with no problems at all. As I am covered by private health insurance I do not know what costs are. But have been informed by friends costs here are very reasonable. These do however, vary, especially here in Istanbul. I have found the Baskent Hospital to be excellent for both service and costs," remarked another expat who made the move to Antalya, Turkey.

"Turkey has a comprehensive healthcare system that provides quality medical services to its citizens. The country has a network of public and private hospitals, clinics, and medical centers that offer a wide range of medical services, including preventive care, diagnosis, and treatment. The government provides free healthcare to all citizens, and there are also private health insurance plans available. Turkey also has a number of specialized medical centers that provide specialized care for specific conditions, such as cancer, heart disease, and neurological disorders. Additionally, Turkey has a number of medical research centers that are dedicated to researching and developing new treatments and technologies," explained one expat living in Turkey.
