Abstract

Despite increasing reference to medical tourism by politicians and reports in popular media, there remains little understanding of actual size, scope, and effect of inbound and outbound UK patients. Although evidence suggests that a growing number of patients travel to access (and pay for) medical treatment, including UK residents and, equally, that patients travel to the UK for treatment, little is known about the scale of these events and potential effects, including costs and income for the NHS.
