Caveat Emptor I would have thought. Going to Hungary to have major abdominal surgery.... Nuts.


Patients who engage in patient mobility for this type of surgery only seem to think about the outlay's for medical costs and certainly nothing about the the possibily of things going wrong or the aftercare arrangements...

It would get you thinking how many patients actually bother to consult with their General Practitioner or any doctor practising in a hospital in Ireland before heading off for major or even minor surgery!
