"Scotland has a comprehensive healthcare system that is free at the point of use for all residents. The system is funded by the Scottish Government and managed by the National Health Service (NHS) Scotland. NHS Scotland provides a wide range of services, including general practice, hospital care, mental health services, and community health services. Patients can access these services through their local GP or hospital. Scotland also has a range of specialist services, such as cancer care, fertility services, and palliative care. In addition, Scotland has a number of private healthcare providers that offer a range of services," remarked another expat who made the move to Scotland.
