The standard of healthcare in Turkey varies depending on your location and whether you are using the public or 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 programs, 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 bilingual English speaking professionals in privately-run establishments.
