The standard of healthcare in Turkey varies widely between the public and private system. While cheaper than most of its European counterparts, the quality of public healthcare in Turkey isn’t as high. However, Turkey is fast becoming known for its growth in areas such as cosmetic surgery, dentistry and fertility treatment.
In terms of shared healthcare programmes, EU citizens are yet to enjoy the same reciprocal agreements in Turkey that member states have across the continent.
Turkish is the main language spoken by medical staff at public hospitals and clinics, while expats are more likely to find English-speaking professionals in privately-run establishments.
