Our GP Service
Are you a GP looking to inform, recommend or refer your patients to the option of self-pay private medical treatment abroad?
Having private medical treatment can be invaluable for your patients and the NHS.
There are many reasons why you might be looking to recommend this to your patients:-
It could be any of the below:-
- If a patient does not wish to wait for the treatment and they want to be treated quickly
- If a patient does not meet the NHS criteria for their treatment
- If a patient is concerned about cleanliness standards such as MRSA
- If a patient is looking for clinical excellence and world class medical care
- If a patient is looking to be treated with respect and dignity at all times
- If a patient is looking for a provider to make all their arrangements for them
- If a patient is looking for an easy booking process yet with an exemplary level of service throughout
Arranging fast private treatment
With Operations Abroad Worldwide, your patient will receive quick access to world class, state-of-the-art facilities and diagnostic services.
We can arrange diagnostic tests such as MRI, CT scans within 24 hours.
Results are then provided the same day directly to the patient.
If a surgery procedure is needed then the surgery can usually be arranged within 7 days.
Operations Abroad only choose hospitals which have very strict hygiene procedures in place which means that to date we have had no cases of any operations abroad patients acquiring MRSA or C-Difficle. Each hospital is continuously monitored by their local health government with routine testing and publishing of their infection rates and clinical results.
Your patient will be looked after by the same highly trained consultant from the start until the completion of their treatment. Many of the surgeons are Professors of Medicine and educate younger doctors at the university medical schools.
The surgeons all attend regular conferences and keep up to date with the very latest operating techniques so you can rest assured that your patient will be in the safest hands.
