International Patient Care
Seeking medical treatment outside your home country can be a challenge for you and your family. Your search for the best medical treatment at a reasonable price will lead you to explore India and the hospitals there. As you explore further you would notice that the success rate for most of the medical surgeries are on par with the best in the world.
It is common to have doubts and questions about the hospitals and treatments in a different country.
How do you assure yourself that you have made the correct choice when it comes to the hospital?
How do you go about in a foreign land, with somebody you care, trusting your decision?
The International Patient Service at S.K Hospital will guide you from the moment of contact/communication till you get back home safely. This includes
A medical certificate that you can travel overseas for treatment has to be arranged which is signed by the local doctor. Share your medical case history with details of treatment taken, latest medical reports and current clinical status with the expert team at SK Hospitals. SK Hospital strictly follows medical confidentiality and the information discussed will remain with the team that is engaged in the discussion.
Once the latest medical reports are shared, an online consultation with the concerned doctor can be arranged. The doctor will suggest the options available and the most suitable treatment plan. SK Hospital will share the treatment plan with an estimate of likely charges.
Once the travel date is confirmed, we will send the medical visa invitation letter. This letter is required to get the medical visa from the Indian embassy in your country. There is a possibility of extension of the medical visa duration if the treatment demands it. The International patient care team will attend to this. Foreign nationals staying in India for more than 180 days have to register at the FRRO (Foreigners Regional Registration Office) within 14 days of arrival. Hospital will provide assistance to the patient/bystanders to register at the FRRO
