Expats moving to Utrecht can rest assured that the Netherlands is credited with having one of the best healthcare systems in Europe. So, expats can be sure that they will have access to excellent facilities and highly qualified medical professionals. However, it is important to do some research and invest in the right health insurance policy when moving to Utrecht. 

EU citizens can use their European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) to access state healthcare here during a short-term visit. UK citizens can make use of their Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC), which replaced the EHIC for UK citizens post-Brexit.

Generally, most medical staff at hospitals in Utrecht speak English well, so expats should not have too much of an issue when it comes to communication. 

Here is a list of some of the major hospitals and healthcare facilities in Utrecht.
