Take a quick look to Hospitals, Family Physicians System and Health Services in Istanbul and Turkey

15 May 2021 Life in Turkey

Turkey’s health services and hospitals are very progressive and developed compare to the most countries of the world. It has many reasons such as high level of medicine education, sufficient figures of health workers and the general health system regulations. Istanbul the biggest and most developed city of Turkey, is a leader in health sector not only in the country but almost among the western countries.

There are 220 hospitals in Istanbul, 141 of which are private, 17 of them are universities and 62 of them are affiliated to the Ministry of Health. When you get your Turkish citizenship by purchasing a property, you will immediately have the benefits of General Healthcare services, not only for public hospitals to university hospitals but also for private hospitals. 

Moreover, every individual has a family doctor in Turkey. This means, you will be provided preventive health services and primary care diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitative health services for individuals and their family members near their place of residence or in an easily accessible location. Not only in Istanbul but all over the country, the family physician evaluates the individuals under his / her responsibility not within the framework of a disease, but with a holistic approach, together with the risks, health conditions, psychosocial environment and other existing acute or chronic health problems.

It takes the necessary measures to protect the person under his responsibility from diseases. In case of illness, he performs the treatment within the framework of his knowledge and experience. It acts as a coordinator by directing the person to other specialist physicians, dentists or secondary-tertiary health institutions with the consultancy services it will provide in health problems that require specialization or special equipment. Therefore, the family physician is also the health counselor of the registered people, the person who guides them in health issues and defends their rights.

In this respect, family physicians have the effect of preventing misdirections, irregularities and unnecessary health expenses that may cause loss of time by individuals and service providers. For this reason, waste in health expenditures is prevented, unnecessary backlogs and patient grievances in secondary care are prevented. There are almost 4.000 family physicians serving in Istanbul.

The number of our healthcare personnel in Turkey is 1 million 61 thousand 635. 165 thousand 363 of these are doctors and 204 thousand 969 are nurses. This is the health army that is on duty day and night for all Turkish citizens and that is one of the key reasons of having such success in covid-19 issue. There is no example of such a rapid recovery.

Turkey is one of the leading advantageous country in Europe in terms of intensive care capacity as well. According to the data of the Turkish Statistical Institute (TUIK), Turkey's hospital bed capacity is almost 250.000 located in hospitals. This bed capacity is distributed as fallows:  nearly 141.000 of these are in hospitals affiliated with the Ministry of Health, 42.000 in university hospitals and 50.000 in private hospitals.

As a result, Turkish citizens are provided a very qualified health services in Istanbul and in whole country as well
