Health Tourism with Brits Flying Abroad for Ops now Worth 2bn a year

HEALTH tourism has never been so popular – and is worth £2billion a year.

More than 60,000 Brits go abroad each year for ­operations ranging from nose jobs to heart bypass surgery – with the added bonus of combining them with a holiday.

Hospitals and clinics around the world pitch for business with rock-bottom prices and inducements from travel brochures.

Savings are the main attraction – with breast augmentation halved from its UK list price of £4,750.
