Patients forced abroad12th March 2008
The agency Treatment Abroad has released details of a survey which reveals increasing numbers of Britains are going abroad to receive medical care and dentistry.
An estimated 100,000 people went overseas for treatment last year, an increase of 30,000 from 2006. Keith Pollard, the agency's managing director said: "Dentistry is the biggest part of the business. It is driven by the high prices charged in the UK and the difficulty of finding an NHS dentist. When you find a private dentist, the prices are shocking."
