Mark will speak at the European Summit, part of the WMT & GHC. Medical Tourism within Europe is not a new phenomenon. 2006 saw a surge in European medical tourists fueled by the dental market and patients from the UK struggling with availability in their home country and looking to save up to 70% on treatment costs. Pretty much all 28 member states have declared themselves a medical tourism destination, offering a multitude of treatments. The 25th October 2013 also saw ratification of the EU Directive on Cross Border Healthcare, a framework describing how to exercise your rights as a citizen of the European Union to medical treatment in any member state as long as you fulfil certain conditions. Mark will lend his experience to help sort out these issues.
