Turkey holiday warning: FCO issues warning over medical tourism after 17 deaths | Travel News | Travel


In January 2021, a British mother died after travelling to Turkey and having liposuction surgery.

Britons should also check that good aftercare will be available if they opt for a medical treatment in Turkey.
