Health services

The Czech Republic is an advanced Central European country in which there is no danger of extreme illness or epidemic. Prague has a good network of health services, both state-funded and private, as well as pharmacies and emergency services.

In order to receive urgent care EU citizens must have a European health insurance card. It is also useful to have commercial insurance. Commercial insurance is essential for citizens of non-EU countries, otherwise medical care must be paid for in cash. In case of a problem two emergency numbers can be used:

  • 112 – the universal emergency number which will connect you to police, fire and ambulance services. This number can even be called from a mobile phone without credit or a SIM card. The operator, who can give advice in foreign languages, will be able to determine your present location.
  • 155 – the emergency number for ambulance services in the event of danger to life or health and wherever medical attention is required. The operator will give advice on first aid until an ambulance arrives.
