Healthcare, hospitals in Budapest


If you are in Hungary and need medical care, be sure to call the following number, where an English-speaking operator will help you:

Nonstop medical assistance in English (Falck SOS Hungary): 06-1-2400-475

If an accident or malaise does not require urgent medical attention, we recommend that you visit a private hospital where patients are treated in an emergency. These are much more expensive, but technical equipment and speed can compensate you or a family member in many cases.

The waiting time of up to 5-6 hours in the hospitals, accident departments and internal medicine in Budapest is not surprising. And although doctors and nurses in Hungary are extremely highly trained and provide patients with unquestionable expertise, in many cases the long wait only worsens the patient’s condition.

So if you can, avoid these public institutions for fast and professional care.
