For day to day health care, any of the Individual Doctors and private Clinics are very good and can help you with most of your health issues. If you need emergency care requiring immediate attention it is probably best to call the private ambulance service and have them take you to one of the private hospitals. If you have international health insurance then most likely an emergency service will be covered.
You should check your insurance coverage to make sure. If you have decided to use the public healthcare system then you have done the research and know what is required to get care. If you have an existing condition or would feel more comfortable then schedule an appointment with one of the private Doctors listed above and discuss an emergency plan with them.
