Hello, How do you get medical treatment in Ireland when you need it? Is care similar, or very different from where you are from? Do you need to register with a local doctor (GP)? Is it easy and quick when you need to see a doctor? What is the cost (drugs, treatment, reimbursement…)? Is there a long delay? Where do you buy your medicine in Ireland? Are pharmacies all the same? Are most drugs over-the-counter, or prescription? How does the hospital system work? What are the main differences between private and public care? Do you need/do you recommend private health insurance in Ireland ? Please share your experiences so new/future expats can prepare. Thanks in advance for you tips and advice!
