Medical services in Riyadh can be top-notch. Expats by and large choose to frequent private medical clinics and hospitals, where everything's on hand, from routine diagnostics to invasive, radical surgery. The facilities in these hospitals are hygienic, state-of-the-art, and staffed by administrators who are familiar with international claims processing. Most medical personnel at private clinics speak English, as many them also happen to hail from abroad. But of course it all comes with a price tag, so it's important to make sure you're covered, insurance-wise, before making that first appointment.

Pharmacies in the capital are typically just around the corner, and sell most of the standards, like painkillers and eye-drops, on an over-the-counter basis. Westerners may be surprised, however, to find that they can walk in and buy antibiotics without a prescription, whereas anti-depressants are so tightly controlled as to be virtually unavailable. Should you have any specific medical concerns, your Move One relocations consultant can do all the necessary research to ensure that you have everything you need to make your adventure in Riyadh a success.
