Medical & Emergency
Its always a worry when you are overseas and in need of medical assistance or emergency services. Although Antigua has a population of less than 100,000, many towns in the UK and US of this size do not have the health care facilities, both public and private that are available here.
In addition to the main hospital there are numerous private medical clinics ,doctors practices and dental surgeries where international standards of treatment are available.
It is advisable however, to have medical insurance for both treatment in Antigua and medical evacuation as it can be costly. Also, make sure your credit card is acceptable when you make your appointment.
