Good Morning, I am trying to understand better the health care system in Portugal as this is a consideration into where I decide to move. I am a health care provider in the US and have heard that in Portugal (while health care is rated very good) there cab be service disparities in some more rural areas. Is this so and if so which cities Coimbra and North from there have good medical and dental care?
Also do I understand the system correctly? One starts with a local clinic provider according to where they live? What does one do if they have a more specialized care need such as Oncology, Cardiology, Neurology? Are they referred to a specialist in the district in which they live? Which cities have the best hospitals and specialty care? Ok thanks. I think that's it for now. Roberta
