SOME
OBSERVATIONS
Individually, none of the countries have a critical mass of a population to support complex services
There is no confidence in the local services. 65% of Kuwaitis, 43% of Qataris, 39% Emirates and 35% of Saudis prefer treatment abroad
The introduction of private health insurance or hospital management contracts has not had an impact on the number of patients traveling abroad for treatment
Heavy reliance on expatriate clinical staff
Accreditation
Quality programmes
CME

There are less local doctors being trained in the UK
Threats & weaknesses
Compared to anywhere else in the world, London has the greatest number of sub-speciality doctors within a 5 mile radius of Harley Street
Introduction of Electronic Visa Waiver (EVW) for Qataris, Emiraties and Kuwaitis
Middle Eastern focus and support of Healthcare UK
