While the priority for most people who choose to go on a medical holiday is naturally the medical procedure itself, it’s important not to neglect the holiday part as well! The best kind of medical holiday is that in which you can meet your medical needs as well as indulging in a range of different leisure activities. A good balance between the two will ensure that you leave your destination of choice feeling relaxed and rejuvenated, which in turn will lead to a speedier recovery and a better outcome for your overall procedure.
