Los británicos aprovechan sus vacaciones para evitar la espera del sistema de salud

Un sondeo realizado por YourSurgeryAbraod en colaboración con la Asociación Internacional Médica de Viaje arrojó como resultado que aproximadamente un 40 por ciento de británicos viaja fuera de su país para someterse a cirugía y así evitar las listas de espera del Sistema Nacional de Salud del Reino Británico.

El estudio realizado sobre un total de 7.000 personas, reveló que sólo un diez por ciento de los llamados ‘turistas médicos’, lo hacen por cirugía estética pero que el total de ellos tiene en cuenta también que los tratamientos son más baratos que el año anterior en el extranjero y que, por ese motivo, el 22 por ciento prefiere en caso de no poder viajar, posponer la operación a ponerse en una larga lista de espera.

 ‘El 71 por ciento de los británicos en nuestro estudio utiliza Internet para averiguar las opciones de tratamiento que puede obtener en el extranjero, lo que ha creado una industria multimillonaria’, dijo Adam Nethersole, director de YourSurgeryAbroad.com.

La muestra reveló que cerca del 80 por ciento de los encuestados desconoce que pueden ser tratados en cualquier país de la Unión Europea y conseguir que  el Sistema Nacional de Salud pague en virtud de una directiva transfronteriza europea de medicina.

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues
    of plagorism or copyright infringement? My website has a lot of unique content I’ve either authored myself or
    outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it

    stolen? I’d truly appreciate it.
