Medical Tourism is the term given for individuals seeking treatment abroad. It has grown over time as the quality and the attractiveness of low cost medical treatment in countries such as Malaysia, India, Thailand, Singapore and Turkey have grown in reputation and stature.
As the cost and waiting times of medical treatment increase in countries like the UK and Australia many people view this service as an effective and reliable alternative to expensive private health care. Many combine their treatment abroad with a holiday to their destination, hence the term “Medical Tourism”.
On the other hand many patients from to-called developing countries’ undertake medical tourism due to lack of facilities in their own countries.
