Norway recommended for medical tourists

Norway has the lowest rate for the superbug MRSA in Europe

Healthcare may be free in the UK, but long waiting lists mean that many opt for private care in or outside the country. In 2010, more than 300,000 Britons went abroad for medical treatment, including surgery and palliative care. Norway has a reputation for exceptionally high cost of living. But its social democratic way of life means that there is not a large gap in salaries between the country’s highest and lowest paid employees. Doctors do not have huge incomes and that keep surgery costs low.
Quality of after care is excellent and Norway has the lowest rate for the superbug MRSA in Europe. Less than 1% of all bloodstream infections in Norway are drug resistant, according to the European Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance System, compared to 43.6% in the UK. There are also no waiting lists. And, of course, it has beautiful natural sights to ease health-related worries.
