I was wondering what experiences you English-speakers had with healthcare in Central Portugal. My mom is in her 60s and I'd strongly prefer bringing her with me when I pull the trigger on permie retirement, but there'll be a period where neither of us speak the local language particularly well and access to healthcare is important for someone at her age. My online research shows some English-speaking doctors nearer to the coast (i.e. Porto, Lisbon and Coimbra), but I can't find any data for hospitals around Viseu or Castelo Branco.
Do you have experiences with English-speaking doctors in Central Portugal? If so, were you satisfied with the level of care you received?
My husband spent several months in hospital last year in Castelo Branco and whilst most of the nurses spoke no English, there were plenty who could speak enough for him to feel very comfortable and at home there. Most doctors will speak at least some English, and many are fairly fluent.
