Medical services

International-standard health care is available at the main city hospitals. An ambulance service, under the auspices of the police, was introduced in April 2004. Initial emergency treatment may be free, but all other health care is charged. English is spoken in all hospitals and clinics in Muscat.

Pharmacies rotate to provide 24-hour coverage in all regions; check Oman Observer to learn which ones are on duty on a given day. Pharmacies can advise which local doctors or dentists are on duty.
