Vilnius, Lithuania -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/21/2015 -- In the UK, it is quite common for a person after trauma to wait weeks in order to see a doctor and get a diagnosis and medical treatment plan. It is not uncommon to wait 10+ weeks to have the necessary appointments and tests done, and even after that, many patients would not know what to do next.
In the recent years, more and more people from the UK go abroad for medical treatment and surgeries. However, it is getting more common for people to go to another country to just have all the necessary tests and diagnostics done after traumas, with a goal to have a clear view of the condition and a clear medical treatment plan after trauma.
Liam Davies, who had knee injury 4 months ago, says: "I simply could not wait for weeks to get my diagnosis in the UK. My range of movement was limited, my leg would get swollen, my life was not comfortable at all – I just had to stop this waiting and wanted to actually know what the problem was, and how it had to be treated. Going to a hospital abroad and spending 2 days there to solve all this problem looked like a very good option – and I am extremely happy to have done exactly that. Not only I got full diagnosis of my condition, I also knew what and how needs to be treated in order to get back to normal again."
Andrius Jonutis, General Deputy Manager at Kardiolita, says: "While most of our patients from abroad come to us for surgeries, we see more and more people arrive for getting a diagnosis and treatment plan after trauma – couple of days at Kardiolita hospital, and they get what would take them months to get in the UK - very wise decision indeed. Moreover, these patients also come back to us for surgeries – saving up to 80% of what it would cost them in the UK."
It is important to note that for elective treatment and surgeries, UK patients can get their treatment cost reimbursed by the NHS.
