NHS Treatment Abroad Checklist

NHS has a guide checklist that people seeking treatment abroad should go through before making a decision.

As Clinic Travel Turkey, we are working in accordance with NHS Treatment Abroad Checklist to make sure that all of our services are reliable and transparent to you.

NHS: Think about your reasons for going abroad

  “Make sure your decision is based on the quality of the medical care you would like to receive and not on how appealing the destination seems for a holiday.”

CTT: We offer to arrange your medical travel based on the high quality of the medical care to be performed by highly qualified and experienced doctors in internationally accredited hospitals or in Ministry of Health-approved partner clinics at affordable prices. Being one of the most appealing destinations in Turkey, Izmir is only a plus to the medical care you will be receiving.

NHS: Know the warning signs and think carefully before booking any treatment abroad if there is:

  “a hard sell”

CTT: We make sure that you have all information related to your treatment and travel details that are included in your inclusive package. And we would like to give you the time you need to consider your options.

 

“a lack of information”

CTT: From our first contact until the end of your treatment, we do our best to keep you informed on each and every detail of your treatment.

 

“no mention of aftercare”

CTT: We are always within your reach even after your treatment is completed. In the improbable event of a minor or a major problem related to your treatment, you can always contact us and we can get you in contact with your doctor. 

NHS: Do your research and ask yourself

  “Have you checked the qualifications of the medical team treating you?”

CTT: CLICK HERE to check the qualifications of our Dental, Cosmetic and Eye Team. 

  “Have you been able to ask them questions about your treatment?”

CTT: After our first contact, you have the opportunity to ask all questions you have related to your treatment. We transfer all your questions to your doctors and get detailed answers for you.

  “Are you satisfied with the facilities and standards at the clinic or hospital where you will be treated?”

CTT: Click HERE to check the facilities and standards of our clinics.

NHS: Check if the treatment is available in England

CTT: Your desired treatment may be available in England, but you can get your treatment in Izmir/Turkey at more affordable prices compared to the UK prices thanks to Turkey’s affordable cost of living and the advanced private healthcare system.

NHS: What about aftercare and possible side effects or complications?

  “Make sure you understand the possible complications and side effects that could arise from your treatment.”

CTT: During your physical consultation, your doctor will explain possible risks and complications, and you will have opportunities to ask any questions related to your treatment.

  “Ensure you are clear about how your aftercare will be coordinated.”

CTT: We are always within your reach even after your treatment is completed. In the improbable event of a minor or a major problem related to your treatment, you can always contact us and we can get you in contact with your doctor. 

NHS: Do the maths

  “fluctuating exchange rates”

CTT: We receive your payment in pound sterling, euros or US dollars so you do not have to worry about fluctuating exchange rates.

  “the possibility of extending your stay if necessary”

CTT: Accommodation is set and included in our treatment packages so you do not have to worry about this matter.

NHS: Check if you need prior authorisation from the NHS

CTT: Since the NHS does not reimburse your treatment in Turkey, you don’t need any prior authorisation from the NHS before your medical travel to Izmir/Turkey.

NHS: Compare your funding options

CTT: You will be funding your own treatment; the NHS will not reimburse your treatment or travel expenses in Turkey.

  “Does this funding involve my travel and accommodation costs?”

CTT: Since the NHS does not reimburse your treatment in Turkey, you will not receive any reimbursement for your treatment, travel and accommodation expenses in Izmir/Turkey.
