New medical association eyes foreign patients

 

Polish private medical institutions have joined forces to jointly promote the medical services provided in Poland on the international market. Dozens of clinics have set up a medical organization called Medical Tourism Chamber of Commerce
(IGTM), based in Gdansk. It seeks the support of the government and local governments, the tourism industry, the representatives of Poland abroad and foreign countries in Poland.

IGTM seeks to target German, Scandinavian and British patients as dentistry and cosmetic surgery in Poland cost far less than in many older EU countries, around half the price. According to IGTM’s data there are dozens of Polish clinics specializing in services for foreigners and Polish clinics not only compete with their western counterparts in terms of prices, but also the quality of services, which has improved vastly in the past decade.
