Are there any particular health concerns? What is the quality of available medical care? What medical conditions typically require medical evacuation?

For "routine" things, I think the medical and dental care is quite good. You may want to look at options in London or back home for anything planned or major. - Dec 10, 2015
Excellent medical care on the local economy. Most physicians speak good English, most support staff do not. - Aug 3, 2011
Do not get seriously injured! Motel, the local hospital, was built by Hitler, it is that old. If you do, you should go to London. Some people say don't drink the tap water. I did for 4 years and didn't get sick once. - Jan 1, 2008
