I’m a very occassional member of these boards but was dxd 10 years ago at 16, very ill for the first 2/3 years then well for the next 7/8 and ended up moving to Prague, Czech Republic (though I’m British). I had a relapse recently and still have very minor symtoms but ended up seeing a neurologist here in Prague on Friday. She sent me for an MRI yesterday and was in hospital today for a LP and steroids but just wanted to post here about what a fantastic, professional, helpful healthcare team I’ve had- all the drs spoke excellent English and the nurses, although they didn’t generally speak much English, it was more than enough to get by and the dr was normally present with them so language wasn’t a problem. The food was better than the UK in my experience too!!
I’ve go togo back every day this week to continue the steroid treatment but the dr let me do this a an outpatient which is great!
So if you are thinking about moving here or coming to stay don’t let health concerns put you off- make sure you have the European health care if you’re just visiting and all you’ll have to pay is 100czk a day (about five quid) as that’s the flat fee for every day spent in hospital.
Has anyone else experienced healthcare in the Czech Rep? I’d be very interested to compare stories!
