Why consider Norway for treatment?

After centuries of domination by the Swedes and Danes Norway gained independence in 1905 and as well as attracting mountaineers from all over Europe, Norway is now attracting medical tourists and is becoming a growing destination for diagnostic imaging as exceptional, English speaking, EU accredited medical staff provide first class diagnostic imaging services (CT scans, MRI scans, ultrasound, X-rays, mammography and bone density measurements) at affordable prices.

Surgeons in Norway undertake many years of intensive training and study, and are often registered with the General Medical Council in the UK. Norway has a top health care service and patients choose to travel to Norway for private medical treatment because there are no waiting times and  because the prices are competitive; an MRI starts at €240 in Norway with Scanhealth Scandinavia, a partnership of three private health care companies providing radiology, orthopaedic, ophthalmology and fertility treatments in Haugesund, West Norway.

Pre or post treatment the medical tourist can take advantage of a range of medical holidays. These range from a mini break or holiday in a totally unspoilt natural environment among warm and friendly people, enjoying the fresh, crisp health-inducing air and the clean, green environment. Activity seekers can enjoy canoeing, hiking or skiing - the west coast in particular has spectacular scenery which is fantastic for hiking and cruising on the fjords.

The further north you go the colder it is but the average country temperature in the summer is 16 degrees Celsius while Oslo (the capital) reaches 22 degrees. The best time to visit is between May and August with average temperatures of 15 to 25 degrees Celsius, but many visitors choose the autumn for medical tourism trips so that they can enjoy the beautiful warm tones of the forests.
