Getting Medical Treatment In France
France is a land of medical innovation. To make its expertise available to all, it has decided to consolidate its healthcare infrastructure for those seeking medical treatment in our country.
Access to French healthcare is now much easier, with a facilitated health visa process, improved hosting conditions for patients and their families, tailored services, and specially trained staff available if needed.
To help patients find what they need, the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development, in collaboration with Atout France Agency and the French hospital federations (FHF, FHP, Fehap, Unicancer) have published an information booklet entitled “Getting medical treatment in France” to help patients.
This booklet explains the excellent medical facilities available in France in seven specialist fields:
- cardiovascular diseases
- follow-up care
Along with a list of services selected by the hospital federations in each of the seven disciplines for the quality and excellent reputation of their staff, their international experience, knowledge of foreign languages and ability to welcome and care for foreign patients.
