Medical Care in Australia

Australia not only serves as a dream travel destination, but offers visitors an excellent health care system. There is no need to worry about emergency or medical complications if travelling to the country, as you will have access to an excellent quality of care, especially in large cities. In addition, most medical centers offer modern equipment. Australian general practitioners and specialists operate in private clinics or in public hospitals, yet fees can prove quite expensive. You can equally take advantage of the special care offered by flying doctors, especially in emergency situations. If there are serious health problems, medical evacuation to the United States will be recommended.

In case of an emergency, you should dial 000.
