Health Care in Scotland & Edinburgh

Whether you are travelling to Scotland and Edinburgh for your holidays or are thinking relocation, you’ll find in the Health section very practical information.

Find a doctor (GP) in Edinburgh in your area and register with a GP surgery...

Find a dentist where you live and register with the dental practice...

Entitlement to free healthcare...

Find a hospital (public or private) in Edinburgh, how to get there, what they do...

Pay for a hospital treatment, private doctor, prescription charges...

Know emergency numbers...

Health insurance, waiting lists...

And much, much more...

Most of the answers depend on whether you're a visitor coming from the EU or outside the EU as the entitlement to free healthcare is not the same.

If you're staying in Scotland as "Au Pair" then you'll also find here what type of healthcare you are entitled to.
