Medical tourism is one of the fastest-growing businesses on earth. With the rising price of treatment in the UK and long waiting lists, there's never been a better time to combine a trip abroad with a treatment. Plus many other countries have not been affected by the deadly MRSA bug in the same way that the UK has - another reason why going outside the UK is an attractive option. Hospitals overseas are clean, well-staffed and the food is great. What more could you ask for? Nothing - except the guide to know where to go - and here it is. The first section of the book deals with the different types of medical procedures and at the end of each is a cross-reference to countries listed in part two. There are 24 countries you can visit which will give you the help you need at a price that can't be matched in the UK.
