7/24 health service for foreigners

Health consulting in English, German, Arabic, and Russian is available on the Turkish Health Ministry’s 24-hour foreign call center service.

Dursun Aydın, the head of the ministry’s health tourism department, said the health consulting service had been providing service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in four languages at 444 4 728 since the beginning of the year.

English, German, Arabic, and Russian translators work at the call center, Aydın said. “In our country in the summer season, there is a drastic rise in the number of tourists. With this phone line, we serve tourists who have health problems.”

Within the scope of the Health Ministry’s “tourist health” project, foreign patients have been provided with health services at hospitals in Antalya, Muğla and Aydın. “Foreigners can use paid ground and air ambulances, while Turks use these services free of charge,” Aydın said.
