Treatment Abroad Medical Tourism Survey 2012


The research was undertaken by European Research Specialists on behalf of Intuition Communication who run Treatment Abroad, and the International Medical Travel Journal.

The research provides insight into:

  • Why patients decide to travel for treatment
  • Where they go for treatment
  • What kind of treatment they undergo
  • What they spend on the trip
  • The good and bad aspects of their customer and patient experience

The 2012 study attracted over 1,000 participants. (Our previous medical tourism research study attracted over 650 participants to the survey.) Around half of the survey participants were UK patients who travelled abroad for treatment.

The research data has also been provided at no charge to a Medical Tourism Research Team led by Dr Neil Lunt at the University of York and Professor Richard Smith at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. The team recently completed a review of Medical Tourism for the OECD.
