Expats moving to Utrecht can rest assured that the Netherlands has one of the best healthcare systems in Europe. So, expats can be sure they will have access to excellent facilities and highly qualified medical professionals. Be that as it may, it is important for expats to do some research and invest in the right insurance policy for their needs.

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

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