Good planning is key to making the most of your medical tourism experience, so here are some top tips to bear in mind when planning your medical trip…
1. Keep your own doctor fully informed
It’s very important that you let your doctor know about your plans to seek medical treatment overseas. Speak to your doctor before you go, and give them all the details regarding your treatment. Then book yourself in to see them again after your return.
2. Keep in touch with the hospital and your healthcare specialist
Information is key to a great experience. Keep in touch with the hospital where you’ll be staying and get to know all the details regarding your treatment and the aftercare process provided.
3. Take your medical records and reports home with you
When you leave the hospital, don’t forget to take your paperwork with you, it may well contain important information that can help with your recovery.
4. Make good plans for your recovery
Your recovery period is very important, so make sure you know exactly what will be involved. Your healthcare specialist will be able to give you some vital information such as your estimated recovery period, and whether or not it is advisable to have someone with you while you recuperate. You’ll also need to know how long you need to recover before you are safe to fly home. It’s advisable to extend this period a little, take it easy, take the time to discover the beauty of Cyprus and maybe spend a while on one of the many stunning beaches before you set off on your way home.
5. Let your hotel know your plans
It’s likely you’ll be staying in a hotel before and after your treatment, so let them know about your procedure and if you’ll have any special needs after your surgery.
6. Discover the best places to relax during your recuperation
After your surgery, you’ll be wanting to take it easy, but it’s also a great chance to discover Cyprus. Before you travel, put together a list of great places to visit that are within easy access of your hotel. Perhaps find a short walk with some historic sites on the way, or a quiet beach to pass the day away in peace.
