MEDICAL TOURISM IS one of the areas of Barbados services economy that needs to be paid some serious attention.
That’s the view of Dr Juliet Skinner and Anna Hosford, co-founders of the Barbados Fertility Centre, which provides help to couples who are not able to conceive on their own.
The centre has been the island’s leading proponent of medical tourism for the past decade, annually attracting hundreds of visitors from the United States, United Kingdom and the Caribbean.
Patients not only receive internationally recognised and accredited treatment, but also spend holidays in Barbados while seeing professionals at the BFC as part of a special package deal.
