Med de Tour ( http://www.meddetour.com
), a Berkshire-based medical tourism specialist, is
helping long-suffering UK patients beat massive NHS
waiting lists and avoid the rising cost of private healthcare.
The company is opening up India and the best medical
services it has to offer with breaks that combine high
quality treatment and a relaxing holiday.
Med de Tour's breaks help people ease their pain
and speed their recovery. By visiting India for treatment,
patients can save literally thousands of pounds on
their medical treatment, avoid waiting lists and experience
one of the world's most popular tourist destinations
at the same time. Immediate treatment of an exceedingly
high standard is attracting over 100,000 foreign patients
each year and has created an industry worth over $333
Med de Tour represents state of the art hospitals
in India where top surgeons perform more operations
then in any other country. Equipment and quality is
on par with the best hospitals in the UK and US, and
exemplary records are achieved for cardiac care, orthopaedics
and neurosurgery. India's doctors have excellent world-wide
credentials; which is reinforced by the fact that
36% of UK doctors are Indian**.
Med de Tour handles every stage of the vacation/treatment
process, including: initial diagnosis; forwarding
and receiving x-rays and medical reports; confirming
treatment dates; booking international flights; ordering
visas; booking accommodation and transport arrangements
for the patient and their family; organising the post
surgery holiday and arranging post surgery follow
ups back in the UK. Med de Tour also identifies the
best hospital and surgeons on the patient's behalf
and ensures he/she is kept as comfortable and stress
free as possible. While in India, each patient is
visited regularly to ensure they are progressing well.
After their surgery and before returning to the UK,
Med de Tour offers the patient the chance to go on
a carefully planned, short holiday near the hospital
to aid physical and mental recovery. How better to
recover than relaxing on the beach, in the mountains,
at wildlife sanctuaries, ayurvedic retreats and spiritual
destinations. All travel arrangements are made by
Med de Tour's sister company, Raptor Adventures -
a fully bonded India-specialist travel operator.
Ms Sahar Ali, managing director of Med de Tour, comments:
"Conde Nast and The Lonely Planet rank India
amongst the top five countries UK residents would
like to visit on holiday and, with the phenomenal
growth in the healthcare industry, people now can
combine a rejuvenating break with much-needed medical
treatment. Most medical tourism service providers
simply refer patients to hospitals then approach travel
agents to obtain tickets and tour companies for accommodation
and holiday options. We provide everything 'under
one roof' and ensure the patient gets the best possible
care from start to finish."
As well as arranging medical breaks, Med de Tour
offers a 'Free 2nd Opinion' service on http://www.meddetour.com.
Operated in conjunction with India's second largest
hospital group, the facility enables members - who
sign up free of charge - to send in their diagnosis,
x-ray or blood test result for a second opinion. Med
de Tour also represents several of the best hospitals
in India and gives the option of visiting North or
South India for treatment.
