Health care in Greece traces its roots to the ancient Greek civilization. Hospitals did not exist in the modern sense in the ancient Greek world, but temples dedicated to the healing god Asclepius (called Asclepia) functioned as healing places as well as places of worship.
However, it is not known if a universal health care system was established and if free health care system was provided to the Greek citizens.
Nowadays, healthcare services are provided by a universal health care system and via a private system of hospitals and clinics that are in rapid increase. During the last three years the private sector of healthcare is on an increasing growth due to the fact that many Greeks prefer the private institutions from the public services and because of the establishment of medical tourism services from the private sector.
Medical Tourism starts to play a vital role in the development of the healthcare industry in Greece. Greece’s high respected healthcare services along with the physical environment , the weather conditions and the possibility for a true combination of leisure and medical treatment , ranks Greece among the most attractive places for Medical Tourism.
Health care system in Estonia has seen profound reform since early 1990s. Among the main objectives of the health care reform were reorganising the public funding system and the overextended hospital system, improving the quality and accessibility of general medical care service, and a more efficient use of resources, including reform of primary care, which began in 1991, and was successfully completed by 2003. The training and introduction of family doctors was central to this reform.
The main reason most people first come to Estonia is to see the best preserved and intact medieval city in Europe – Tallinn. The unique value of Tallinn’s Old Town lies first and foremost in the well-preserved nature of its medieval milieu and structure, which has been lost in most of the capitals of northern Europe. Since 1997, the Old Town of Tallinn has been on UNESCO’s World Heritage list.
If you are looking to combine a rich cultural experience with dental or cosmetic treatment, then this may be the destination that suits you best. While prices are not the cheapest compared with the world’s major medical tourism hubs, they are still 40 to 50 percent of those charged in the UK, meaning significant savings are still possible for visitors.
The standard of treatment is high, with clinics employing highly qualified surgeons and nursing staff as well as invariably using state-of-the-art equipment. A good standard of English is spoken at all private clinics which pitch themselves to international patients, and interpreters can be brought in if language problems present themselves. Before or after treatment, visitors can enjoy something of the country’s wealth of cultural attractions.
However, the country is showing signs of taking steps towards increasing its status as a medical tourism hub, having already earned itself a reputation as a destination in which to obtain cheap and good quality dental treatment.
The Czech Republic’s major advantage is its low overheads; the cost of property and the significantly lower salaries of industry specialists and employees mean that the customer pays less, considerably less when you consider that some treatments can be 30 to 40 percent cheaper than in the UK.
Aside from cheap medical treatment, the country is worthy of a visit for a whole host of other reasons and medical tourists invariably stay long enough to check out its historically and aesthetically fascinating cities and interesting cultural aspects.
Today, a variety of medical procedures can be sought in Latvia.

Tourism in Latvia is a relatively new enterprise, and visitors enjoy the mix of medieval architecture, especially in the capital city of Riga, where you’ll find the Gothic St Peter’s Church and Riga Castle. There are plenty of museums chronicling life under and after soviet rule. And for those who need some down time to recuperate, many visitors have compared the white sand Baltic coastline to the Mediterranean.

Following in the paths of countries such as Hungary, Romania, Poland and the Czech Republic, Croatia is waking up to its potential as a medical tourist destination and its government is taking serious steps to ensure that it receives the global attention that it deserves.
Dentistry is the country’s strongest selling point with a full range of essential and cosmetic treatments available at costs well below those on offer in the UK. Cosmetic surgery is also on the rise, with everything from face lifts and liposuction to breast enlargements and reductions available. Prices are, again, a major selling point with savings of up to 40 percent against the cost of similar procedures in the UK.
Croatia has done much to improve its image as a worthy visitor destination since its war-torn days.
