What’s on offer
The contract between Centre Hospitalier de Calais and the CCG was made to provide patients with more choices in healthcare.
Procedures and surgery available at the French hospital include orthopaedics, pain management, ear, nose and throat, gynaecology, general surgery, cataract surgery and urology.
The same price is paid for the treatment and care by the NHS as to a local hospital and patients do not have to pay anything.
Patients must arrange and pay for their own travel.
Follow-up appointments are carried out by phone or Skype.
