Tell us about your treatment abroad: IMTJ Medical Travel Survey 2019

Have you been for surgery or treatment in another country?

Can you help us with some research into medical travel?

Your input will help other people who are considering travelling to another country for surgery, medical or dental treatment. The aim of the research is to learn more about how and why people go abroad for treatment, to find out about the good and bad aspects of their experience, and to provide feedback to clinics and hospitals that provide treatment to international patients.

Your response will support the Smile Train charity AND you could win Amazon vouchers

For every completed questionnaire, £1 will be donated to Smile Train, an international charity that provides cleft palate surgery to children around the world.  Your details will also be entered into a free prize draw, for the chance to win one of five £100 (or €110 or US$130) of Amazon vouchers.*

Who is conducting the survey?

This research is led by the independent UK healthcare research company, LaingBuisson, publishers of Treatment Abroad, and the business website, International Medical Travel Journal.

The survey is confidential

Your response goes direct to LaingBuisson and remains confidential. LaingBuisson will not share individual responses or your contact data with any third party.

The survey will take 10 minutes of your time, and should be completed by 31 March 2019.
