Based in the northern region of Lombardia, Milan is home to almost 1 million and a half inhabitants making it one of the biggest cities in Italy with a GDP per capita higher than the UK but lower than London. Renowned worldwide for its historical, cultural, and architectural landmarks, as well as its notorious fashion and automotive scenes, Milan is considered an economic powerhouse in Europe.
Milan is served by 3 major airports and is easily accessible from the UK in just 2 hours, with dozens of flights available every day.
Ranking n.4 on the World Healthcare Efficiency Index in 2018

5th country in Europe with the highest physician-to-population ratio in 2021
Home to the first and only orthopaedic hospital treating femur fractures within 48h
Milan is the leading capital in Italy when it comes to Healthcare excellence, attracting people from all over the country due to its highly specialised Research Hospitals and Universities, world-class doctors and medical innovations.
Milan has also recently started to establish its position as a medical tourism destination, attracting mostly patients from Switzerland, Germany, the Middle East and the US. With prices nearly reaching London’s standards when it comes to travelling around the city, eating out and booking accommodation, Milan cannot be promoted as a cheap or low-cost destination. On the other hand, the Italian one-to-one (doctor-patient) approach in healthcare seems to be less restricted by institutional guidelines and different from the one-size-fits-all/industrial approach found in other European countries.
At GlobMed, we believe that the Italian approach to healthcare found in Milan delivers better care to patients while staying at the forefront of medical innovation and achieving better medical outcomes.
