Medical Care in Estonia
The Estonian health care system is founded on a system of family doctors, and a clear improvement has been evident in recent years. Essentially, each family has a regular doctor who will be able to refer them to specialists if needed. Although these consultations are free, the quality of the care is not the same as Western standards. Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, is home to the North-Estonian Regional Hospital. Many travelers also choose to use the services at the Medicover Swedish-Estonian Medical Centre.
Most pharmaceuticals are well-regulated, and it is, therefore, possible to buy them from any pharmacy.
To call an ambulance from public institutions, dial 112.
