The only turkey you should be thinking about at the beginning of 2023 is the one you had on Christmas day! And yet thousands of people take the decision to travel around 2000 miles, A, either hugely overweight or B, post-surgery. Of course, there is the cost involved, or rather the saving involved, but that is if all goes to plan.

There are no UK based pre-checks, bloods, consultants, its all done rather more like a chicken battery. In, snip, out kind of way and failing that, a ZOOM! Plus of course, if you speak to your GP, you may find them to be less than comfortable with this ‘Holiday with Benefits plan’.

Before you consider where you have your surgery, consider now the ease of not travelling thousands of miles, being alone in a foreign country, nervous, not having your friends or family able to visit on your two day stay at one of the UK’s finest private hospitals. Now imagine that tired, post-surgery. Also consider why it’s so ‘reasonable’ aboard:

“Medical equipment and standards simply aren't as highly regulated in Turkey as they are in the UK and EU countries. As Turkey isn't part of the EU, they do not comply with the strict guidelines that we see in countries like France and Germany.”

Ever heard the expression ‘You get what you pay for’? Well, when it comes to some pretty serious, life changing surgery never has there been a truer word said! And when you make the decision to use NOSC, you will not be disappointed.
