“Turkey attracts world attention with epidemic success”

Ohasad President. Resat Bahat said that the successful management of the epidemic process, which has overturned the health system in the world, has created a lot of demand for our country in the health tourism market in Turkey, compared to many other countries. The patient population has also changed, he said. “Although many patients came from the Middle East, Africa or the Balkans, today patients from Europe, including France, Germany, England and the Netherlands, prefer our country,” Bahat said. Done. ” Dr. Resat Bahat said the situation could turn into an economic boon for the country’s economy with high value added.

“Health tourism earns more than automotive and tourism”

Dr. Noting that health tourism has higher returns than the automotive or other tourism sectors, Bahat emphasized that the sector should be supported in order not to miss this opportunity, prevent health violence that destroys the chemistry of health workers and improve the financial opportunities of health workers.

The epidemic has shown the whole world how strong, capable, equipped and self-sacrificing the Turkish health system is. “On the other hand, the private sector is accustomed to intensive work, as it has already provided social security, and its contribution to the process was significant during the epidemic. So much so that 40 percent of intensive care beds were in the private sector in Istanbul.” Not even in an emergency. “Not a single patient was deprived of them, not even in the intensive care unit or lack of respiratory equipment. There is no such example in the world. And the world has seen it, “he said.

“People should be allowed new investments”

The epidemic process has shown that the Turkish health system can do better, Dr. “For example, Italy and Spain have a serious private sector. But there are no private hospitals like ours that can perform highly qualified work such as bone marrow, liver and heart transplants. Rather, they are all centers that do small aesthetic treatments,” Bahat said. That’s why during the epidemic, it was very difficult for the public system to meet its own needs, “he said. Explaining that the epidemic has changed all these balances of health tourism, Dr. Bahat said, “For example, many more patients have come to Turkey due to poor management of the epidemic in India. Revenue from health tourism is a very high added value. It brings more revenue to the country than automotive or other tourism sectors. If we are not careful, this market could go out. The public must be allowed to make new investments in this area. Private sector plans need to be expanded. There are 600 private hospitals across Turkey. Unfortunately, only 100 of them can do health tourism.

“We also receive requests for serious training in medicine.”

Note that not only patient tourism, in many countries, both private and public, serious medical training is given in university hospitals. “There is a need for serious training in specialized fields such as liver, heart, kidney transplantation, cancer surgery and radiotherapy. At the same time, we are receiving serious training demands in nursing and intensive care services. In the past, one of our doctors went to America and stayed Come back, we ask him about it. “We will appreciate it to the sky. Now, our medical friends who say they are from America or Germany do not have it. They are the same as before. Because the training that these friends received, we are already doing in those countries, “he said.

“Healthcare, delayed during epidemic, is taking the world by storm”

Emphasizing that citizens should not be worried about their own treatment being disrupted due to health tourism, Dr. Bahat says:

“The rate of foreign patients in health tourism is 5-6 per cent. But foreign patients make up 30-40 per cent of our income. In other words, there is no concentration of patients that will block the system. It will continue for a few years. It exists all over the world. People have not been able to go to the grocery store for 2.5 years, let alone the hospital. Healthcare professionals are also tired of most diseases. The lack of doctors and healthcare professionals, the problem of hospitals is not just a problem in our country, it is a problem all over the world. “

“Countries have started stealing doctors from each other”

In the field of health, human resource problems have reached the level of ‘theft of health workers’ among the countries. “Germany used to subject our doctors to fifty tests. Now all you have to do is accept the offer and tell the doctors who have graduated from a good medical school, ‘If you need us in a specialized field, we will send you a language course for 6 months,'” Bahat said. We will even arrange accommodation for you. ‘ Because he said: “Germany, England and the United States have a serious human resource problem. Countries have begun to ‘steal’ doctors and health workers. To each other very immorally. This is theft, “he said.” Violence is an issue that seriously disrupts the chemistry of our doctors and nurses. We must fix it. And of course, our healthcare workers are a little more financially savvy, as they are extremely valuable around the world, they can. Be disconnected If we lose this resource today, we will replace it. “We have a lot of young people, but it will take us at least 15 years and we will have serious problems,” he said.
