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

"Emergency services respond quickly. Public and private hospitals are within 5 miles, clinics within a few blocks. Quality of care is on par with global high-level expertise. Hospitals are both public and private. Call for an ambulance with emergency call numbers," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Georgetown, Malaysia.

"Emergency services in Malaysia are generally reliable and efficient. In the event of an emergency, the public can call for an ambulance by dialing the emergency hotline number, 999. The call will be answered by a trained operator who will assess the situation and dispatch an ambulance to the scene. The ambulance will be staffed with trained medical personnel who can provide medical assistance and transport the patient to the nearest hospital," commented one expat who made the move to Malaysia.
