You question yourself about surgery in France :
what kind of care, how much does it cost, when can you be operated...

The waiting lists for surgery are so long in the UK that you don’t know who to turn to. Professor John Skinner, President of the British Orthopaedic Assocation said : “Trauma and Orthopaedic patients continue to make up a significant proportion of those on waiting lists. 60,000 are waiting over 52 weeks, a 21% increase on last year, and the numbers over 104 weeks continues to rise“.

Prolonged waiting has a significant impact on patient’s mental and physical health. Patients in severe pain lose mobility and independence, their health deteriorates, they are unable to work, require more GP support and increasingly rely on stronger and stronger pain killers. According to a report from the Royal College of Surgeons in England, the number of patients on the NHS waiting list reached six million in 2022. Of these, over 18,500 had been waiting for more than two years for their surgery. Patients facing the longest waiting times are for Trauma and Orthopaedic treatment, such as hip and knee replacements1. As of January 2021, 58,000 people had waited an average of 25 additional weeks for their hip replacement.
