Medical Tourism in America

See on Scoop.itMedicine in Pictures

The healthcare systems of Europe, Canada and Australia find it difficult to beat the prices and quality offered in medical tourism destinations. However, the USA is fighting back. 

 

Thousands of Britons leave for medical treatment in countries such as the Philippines, Singapore, India, and Thailand each year, but the reverse is also true: foreign patients travel for medical treatment in London hospitals, particularly those with international reputations.

 

Some private and National Health Service (NHS) hospitals actively recruit international patients. For instance, Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, The Princess Grace Hospital, is tapping the European, Asian and African markets.
