"Healthcare services in Portugal are generally good, with long waiting times for some treatments. Portugal has a public healthcare system that is widely used, although some opt to pay for private medical care. Those with chronic illnesses can often find quality treatment, including reduced costs for medication. Public healthcare providers tend to prioritize preventative treatments and health education, with a focus on promoting healthy lifestyles. Overall, Portugal has a robust national healthcare system that provides quality medical care to its citizens," remarked another expat who made the move to Portugal.
