What are medical services in Scotland like?

Answer this Question

When we asked expats and global nomads about the quality of medical care in Scotland, they replied...

"Scotland has a comprehensive healthcare system that provides free medical services to all citizens and permanent residents. The National Health Service (NHS) Scotland is responsible for providing healthcare services, including primary care, hospital care, mental health services, and specialist services. NHS Scotland also provides free prescriptions, dental care, and eye care. Patients can access medical services through their local GP or hospital, or through a range of other services such as walk-in centres, minor injury units, and out-of-hours services. Scotland also has a range of private healthcare providers, offering a range of services including cosmetic surgery, fertility treatments, and private GP services," commented one expat who made the move to Scotland.

"As an RN in the USA, I know that an ER visit is timely and expensive. My only A&E visit in Glasgow was short(45 minutes on a Friday evening from walk-in to walk out) and complete( I was worked up by a nurse, lab tests run immediately, Dr assessed my condition and sent me home with a full 7 days supply of medication). No insurance cards to show, no pre-authorization, no prescription to fill or trying to find a late night pharmacy, just complete and efficient care," remarked another expat in Glasgow, Scotland.
