New Online Resource and Guide for Patients Seeking Health Treatments in Hungary
May 26, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsGoing abroad for dentistry, surgery or cosmetic procedures is an attractive and money-saving alternative to UK based treatment. However, understanding how to go about it and finding the right healthcare provider overseas can be daunting. A new web site from healthcare specialists Intuition Communication, Treatment in Hungary (www.treatmentinhungary.net), focuses exclusively on treatment in Hungary – a destination much favoured by fellow Europeans in neighbouring Germany and Austria, and now by over 22,000 UK patients a year.
Intuition Communication has set up the most extensive online resource for people considering Hungary as a medical tourism destination. Users will be fully informed on the options for treatment in Hungary and can obtain detailed price comparisons with costs in the UK. They can then submit a simple online form to obtain, within 48 hours or less, quotations for treatment from three Hungarian healthcare providers. This saves a tremendous amount of time trawling the web for information and helps the patient maximise the savings on their treatment. For additional reassurance, previous UK patients have recorded their experiences, highlighting the quality of dental and surgical procedures available in Hungary.
“Hungary has a health service very similar to the UK – set up in 1945 and funded by the tax payer. Hungarian qualifications are recognised here and internationally. Many Hungarian doctors and dentists practice in the UK. However, Hungarian private healthcare charges are much lower – often less than half the cost of the UK,” explained Intuition Communication’s managing director, Keith Pollard.
Flying to Hungary used to be quite expensive, but now with low cost flight operators such as Wizzair, Jet2 and SkyEurope you can fly to Budapest from as little as £40 return and even British Airways have good deals. The potential for savings without compromising on quality of care or treatment is obvious – in the UK a breast enlargement costs around £4,500, whereas treatment in Hungary would be around £2,500 including flights and accommodation.
With a flight time of just two and half hours, for many in the UK going to Hungary for treatment may be quicker than travelling to a UK city by car. Reassuringly, hygiene standards in Hungary are amongst the best in Europe and the country’s hospitals have low MRSA rates.
For anyone considering having dental treatment, general or cosmetic surgery abroad, www.treatmentinhungary.net is a great place to start. Everything you need to know about medical tourism can be found in the downloadable free guide at www.treatmentinhungary.net/guide.
