When we asked expats in UK if healthcare and health insurance are expensive in UK, they wrote...

"Healthcare in England is generally considered to be of a high quality and is free at the point of use for all UK residents. However, health insurance can be expensive, depending on the type of coverage and the provider. Private health insurance can be costly, but it can provide access to private healthcare services, such as shorter waiting times and more choice of treatments," said another expat in UK.
