Yes, my family have had regular annual check ups in Bangkok – excellent service and inexpensive. My husband rushed to A & E at Bangkok Hospital in Phuket last month with a bad urinary infection. On Sunday afternoon a urologist was on duty and within an hour he was X-rayed, Ultra-sounds, urine tested and on his way with the right antibiotic. All done for about £100.
I had a knee replacement done in Australia 15 years ago out of choice and it is as good today as it was when it was done. The surgeon’s fee then was AUS1,400.
