About IMTJ

The International Medical Travel Journal provides insight into the medical travel and medical tourism sector. IMTJ was established in 2007 in response to the increasing interest in medical travel and medical tourism.

IMTJ is independent of the associations and special interest groups that have come aboard the medical tourism bandwagon. Our aim is to create a central focus for information, resources and opinion on medical travel for those involved in the industry, anywhere in the world.

The internationalisation of healthcare through health tourism is at the heart of IMTJ. Patients are becoming healthcare consumers and in many countries, patient choice is being extended to surgery and treatment provided by international hospitals and clinics. By sharing expertise, knowledge, and views about the health travel industry, IMTJ helps to ensure that patient expectations are met, and that the industry maintains a high reputation.

A truly international audience came to Berlin to debate the future of medical travel


A truly international audience came to Berlin to debate the future of medical travel

The IMTJ Medical Travel Summit 2019 , held in Berlin, Germany on December 1-3 2019, attracted delegates, exhibitors, sponsors and participants from throughout Europe and as far afield as Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, India, UAE, Mexico and USA. The Summit brought together key opinion leaders and senior executives involved in medical tourism and healthcare businesses across the world to discuss the future of this developing industry sector.

The Summit was co-hosted by TEMOS

The Summit addressed many of the issues that face the sector – the future of global healthcare, trends in healthcare and technology, destination development, and the patient experience. Sessions were dedicated to specific areas such as fertility travel, dental travel, and wellness tourism and important international patient markets including Russia and the CIS, and the Gulf. The closing highlight of the event, the Great Debate, conducted in Oxford Union style, considered whether “medical travel facilitators are an endangered species – arguments for and against.”

According to Keith Pollard, IMTJ Editor in Chief and Executive Chairman of LaingBuisson International:

“Without doubt, this year’s IMTJ Medical Travel Summit was the best so far. We welcomed back many regular attendees who view the Summit as the “must attend” event in their calendar. First timers were impressed by the quality of the content and the networking opportunities and will certainly be back for more next year.“

The event was made possible through the support of Medical Korea, Health Care Industries Cluster Berlin-Brandenburg Health Capital, Bagatin Clinic, Kvarner Health Croatia, Quironsalud, Sana Hospital Group, Gruppo San Donato, Curemart, Healthcare Markets International, European Patient Experience Innovation Congress, Malaysia Healthcare, Illes Balears, Western Union Business Solutions, Mayo Clinic Healthcare in partnership with Oxford University Clinic, Temos International, Clemenceau Medical Center, Health Tourism Albania, Thornbury Nursing Services, France Surgery, Sant Joan de Déu-Barcelona Children’s Hospital, Costa Cálida – Región de Murcia, Helios International, Dünyagöz Hospitals Group, China Medical University Hospital.

About the novel Dating Daisy –
Internet Dating? – in middle age?
– Why yes …
… That’s Daisy Mae – aged 52!

Daisy, recently divorced from ex-husband Voldemort, bravely takes the plunge and starts internet dating. Having not had to think about dates for nearly three decades, and with rudimentary computer skills, Daisy is completely naive about the internet dating process. While dating – Daisy continues to work as a doctor in the sexual health clinic.

This is a humorous, fiction book, but based on the authors’ experiences. Daisy keeps a diary and tells the story as it is – often with hilarious consequences. The medical/ sexual health stories are quite unique.

Daisy tells her story with breathless enthusiasm. She is supported on her journey by a variety of characters – the amigos who live in the swanky house with the swimming pool up the road, and her friends, the irrepressible Pinky, Jeanie, the octogenarian always on hand to give advice from the nursing home, and her wayward daughter, Imogen.

This is a book with a difference – it contains icons, images, limericks, jokes, poems and even a Recipe for Love! Don’t miss dating Daisys’ Kissing Tips and Anti-snoring tips! Most people reading this book say they laugh out loud!
