THE BASICS | 基础句型和词汇

The Chinese health care system is different to that in the UK. In cities, people who want to see a doctor for a serious problem go directly to a hospital to see a specialist. You can also go to a community health centre where there are general doctors, although you may be sent to a hospital immediately if they can’t treat you. The pharmacy is usually the first port of call for most minor ailments.
