Le Tour de France


What’s the one sporting event that springs to mind when you think of France? Le Tour de France – right? Thought so! Le Tour de France is world renowned. It’s by far the greatest cycling event, if not sporting event, in the calendar year, for its test of endurance, stamina, fitness and both physical and mental ability. And whilst the 2014 event starts in the UK, there’s no better place to see it than in its home country of France. The atmosphere, excitement and sheer thrill of watching around 200 cyclists whizz past is most definitely worth the trip. Starting in Yorkshire on Saturday 5th July, Stage 1 and Stage 2 remain in the UK. Stage 3 starts in Cambridge before heading over to France, with Stage 21 finishing in Paris on Sunday 27th July. Covering a total distance of 3,656 kilometres and tackling 5 hill stages and 6 mountain stages, 5 of those with altitude finishes, it’s no wonder it’s seen as the world’s greatest endurance race. So don’t just be one of the 3 billion people watching it through a TV screen, come to France and experience this momentous event live. See you there! Photo credit: Le Tour De France FB Page

Tips for staying healthy this summer


With summer almost upon us, and many parts of Europe already experiencing beautiful warm weather, it’s important to remember that your body is more likely to use the important nutrients it stores to remain at optimum health. So follow this brief guide to make sure you feel at your best during the summer months: 1. Drink plenty of water. This is particularly important if you’re in an extreme hot climate at any point. Avoid sugary drinks and alcohol as these will only make you dehydrate which can lead to loss of strength and stamina, and in severe cases it can affect your kidney function resulting in painful kidney stones. 2. Eat raw foods. Summertime brings an abundance of superb fresh produce ready to pick from the tree or ground – or buy from the super market! But wherever you get it, make your mealtimes as colourful as possible. And the less you cook this fresh produce, the better it is foryour health. Your body will take all the goodness and nutrients on offer to help revitalise and energise you. 3. Get active outdoors. Ditch the gym membership and get outdoors to enjoy the fresh air and vitamin D. Both will invigorate your body and help clear your mind from your everyday stresses and worries. Of course, if you are unwell during this time and need a consultation or treatment, contact ourInternational Patient Services team who are on hand to make your medical plan easier.

Recover from Surgery in Le Mans


Le Mans is probably best known for motorsport. Each June it is host to the endurance race: 24-heures du Mans where drivers and cars are tested to the limits in race of stamina and survival. But Le Mans is more than just motorsport. Set in the heart of the Pays de la Loire, capital of the Sarthe department, Le Mans has captured the hearts of movie directors worldwide. Many well-known films have been shot here including The Man in the Iron Mask, The Three Musketeers and Cyrano de Bergerac. And it’s not surprising why. Being the same size as Lyon but with only one sixth of Lyon’s population, Le Mans is rich in history and space making it a relaxing and enjoyable city to spend a weekend, a week or even longer visiting. If you’re recovering from surgery here, this historic city offers a wide range of activities depending on your capabilities: from wandering the cobbled streets of Vieux Mans with its beautiful 15thCentury timbered houses, to relaxing in the wide open green space of the Jardin des Plantesenticing everyone from families to horticulturists. Or get out of the city and the landscape surrounding Le Mans is stunning. Rolling hills, quaint villages, meandering rivers, chateaux’s and world famous vineyards. Whatever your preference, Le Mans will provide. Contact our International Patients Services team to discuss your healthcare needs. We’re here to help.

This annual festival is renowned by many, including Frommers, for being the “biggest, flashiest, and most prestigious jazz festival in Europe”.

Since its beginning in 1948, the Nice Jazz Festival has seen the likes of Louis Armstrong, Ray Charles, Ella Fitzgerald, Lionel Hampton, Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis perform on its stages. This year the line-up consists of 10-time Grammy winner George Benson, Ben Harper, Esperanza Spalding and legends Earth, Wind & Fire amongst others. So why not speak to our International Patient Services team about your healthcare needs at our clinic in Nice, to ensure you make the most of this popular musical event. Photo credit: Flickr

The best time of year to visit France for surgery


France is a year–round destination that attracts a steady flow of visitors throughout the four seasons of the year. But if that’s the case, when is the best time to travel there for surgery? Well, the summer months are inevitably the most popular and afford the warmest weather. However, the low seasons draw fewer crowds and, therefore, can be a more pleasant time to visit; especially for surgery with its inevitable recovery period. Weather As we’ve said, summer months in France offer the warmest weather, but the country actually enjoys a pleasant and relatively temperate climate all year. Certain regions have their own microclimates, which can cause temperature fluctuations from town to town. For example, an oceanic climate with high humidity is afforded on the Atlantic and Channel coasts, while Paris and the central regions have an intermediate climate with relatively warm summers and cold winters. The south of France, as everyone knows, enjoys a Mediterranean climate that sometimes allows for super-hot summers and calm winters. Crowds School holidays and warm weather mean that May to September is often the busiest time to visit France. Remember though, that France has a reputation for romance and Paris in particular sees a large influx of visitors on and around Valentine’s Day. Two notable French sporting events that attract large numbers of visitors are the Tour De Franceand French Open tennis championships that are held in July and May to June respectively. Furthermore, the Paris Auto Show often entices huge numbers of car enthusiasts. The event, that takes place in October each year, is the pinnacle of the French automobile calendar and gives manufacturers an international audience to which to showcase their unique styles to. France really is a year-round destination, so anytime you are thinking of travelling there for surgery will be fine. However, it’s also worth noting that many small shops and restaurants in Paris and elsewhere, for that matter, often close for part or all of August, when residents take their yearly holidays. Remember though that large crowds may not be the perfect post-surgery prescription, so choose your dates with that in mind. Photo credit: Flickr

Foods that heal: optimise your nutrition following surgery


Many people follow strict eating regimes before any surgery, be it minor or major. However, few people realise that what you eat after surgery is just as important. This is because surgery is a major trauma on our bodies and as such, they have to significantly repair themselves following any surgical procedure. This is why it’s vital that you give your body everything it needs during this crucial healing stage. Many people think that because they will inevitably be inactive following surgery they should reduce their calorie intake. The opposite, however, is often true and post-surgery patients need additional essential calories and nutrients to facilitate the reparation process. Protein It’s important that you follow a balanced diet after surgery, but one of the key components of this has to be protein. Muscles are often damaged or disturbed during surgery and need protein in order to heal. That’s why it’s important to fill your diet with foods like poultry, meat, fish, eggs, yogurt, cheese, beans and nuts. Alternatively, you can use protein supplements to boost your intake and aid the muscle healing process. Vitamins Furthermore, there are a number of vitamins that are vital for the healing process. For example, vitamin C aids in soft tissue repair and vitamin E is important in antioxidant defence. Some individuals may be prescribed vitamin supplements by their medical professional, but the best source, of course, is from food. Almonds, wheat germ, peanuts, sunflower seeds and plant oils are all loaded with vitamin E, while strawberries, citrus fruits, kiwi, Brussels sprouts, broccoli and bell peppers contain high levels of vitamin C. Whatever your surgery, it’s important that you don’t shy away from food. The surgeons have done their bit and now it’s time for you to do yours. Photo credit: © NOBU -

Recover from Surgery in Charente-Maritime


This stunning region of France is probably best known for its miles of sandy beaches, charming French villages, beautiful islands and great weather. In fact, it’s supposedly the second sunniest region of France after the Cote D’Azur! But unlike the Cote D’Azur this area has a much more laid-back vibe. It’s easy to escape the hustle and bustle of the bigger towns for a quieter spot on the coast, or in one of the quaint essential French villages’ further inland. Regarded by many as the prettiest town in France, La Rochelle began as a small fishing village but soon expanded to become an important port in the 13th Century, mainly due to its large trade in wine and salt. Nowadays it’s a lively university town with plenty to see and do. And at certain times of year La Rochelle is host to many large-scale events including Francofolies, the International Film Festival and the Grand Pavois. Just a short distance from La Rochelle connected by a 3km bridge is the charming Ile de Ré. An authentic jewel of an island situated just off the Atlantic coast. Every summer many of the Paris elite head to this little island for sun, sea, sand and to sample the delights of its cuisine. But it’s not all about glamour. With over 100kms of cycle paths, white sandy beaches, and being a bird-lovers paradise, this little island really does cater to all. Of course the Charente-Maritime is not all beach life and wildlife watching. Move inland and you stumble upon village after village filled with white washed buildings, blue shutters and friendly locals. If you’re looking for a region full of sunshine, good food, plenty of activities and beautiful scenery, the Charente-Maritime could be the perfect location to help you recover after surgery.  

Visit France in the Summer


France is one of the most seductive countries in the world and allures travellers from all over the globe with its promises of total diversity. In fact, France is often lauded as the most diverse country in Europe and it’s not difficult to see why. After all, where else can you find celebrated mountains, some of the finest coastline on the continent and everything else in-between? In addition, 28 per cent of France is still covered in forest! A fact that will resonate with anyone who has been there previously and enjoyed some of the sparsely-populated villages that remain complete unto themselves – in other words, they’ve not bowed down to modern influences and haven’t become mere extensions of the inevitable urban sprawl that is often found in many other countries. All of this diversity coupled with the frozen in time picturesqueness of French villages, means that marked regional identities are retained even today. Looking for some inspiration? Check out the Top 25 Tourist Destinations in the Midi-Pyrénées video on our website, which is guaranteed to give you a fantastic insight into some of the region’s very best locations. But being a year-round destination, France enjoys a steady flow of visitors regardless of the season. However, it’s the summer months that often attract the most people and anyone fortunate enough to visit France at this time will be astonished by the sheer number of festivals that the country boasts. There are far too many great festivals to give an overview of them all, so instead we’ve compiled a short list that features three of our favourites. Enjoy… Festival d'Avignon With its roots in the city of Avignon, the Festival d'Avignon, or Avignon Festival, takes place annually in July and has done so since 1947. That’s the year when Jean Vilar founded this exuberant celebration of performing arts – now one of the biggest in the world. Predominantly set in the courtyard of the Pope’s Palace, the Festival d'Avignon plays host to some 3,500 performing arts professionals from around the world. In fact, the festival has become such a popular annual event that it has spawned an unofficial sibling festival, known as the ‘off’, which sees numerous companies performing various works on their own initiative. Carcassonne Festival A must for music lovers, the Carcassonne Festival is held every year from June to August and features some 100 concerts that showcase French and international music talent alike. Past performers include Diana Ross, Supertramp and Bob Dylan. However, the festival also sees live theatre shows, circus, dance and opera all on offer for the crowds to enjoy. This year’s festival will welcome acclaimed international stars like Elton John, the Jacksons and Franz Ferdinand. It really is a wonderful celebration of music from around the world and should definitely be a consideration for anyone travelling to France over the summer. Fêtes de Bayonne As it’s the largest festival in France, the Fêtes de Bayonne was always going to feature on our list. This annual event attracts more than a million visitors each year and is kicked off by the festival’s mascot King Leon. The keys to the city are tossed from the town hall balcony by the king, much to the delight of the massed crowd below. This action signals the start of five days and nights of non-stop partying. It’s not just a party atmosphere though as the Fêtes de Bayonne’s diverse nature means that there is literally something for everyone. Carnival-esque parades, nightly concerts, firework displays and giants roaming the streets are just some of the highlights. Did we mention the two official bullfights that take place in the city’s bullring? There really is no better time to visit France and experience some of the world’s best festivals than summer. Furthermore, July 14 is Bastille Day – the French national holiday and another significant event in the French calendar. Photo credits: Flickr

Highest Quality Standard


And what about French quality standards : The entire healthcare system is regulated by government The majority of specialty activities are submitted to government authorisation, regarding equipment and qualification of medical teams such as for surgery, cancer treatment, interventional cardiology and many others. Regular assessment is operated by French Ministry of Health. The results of physicians practice, procedure numbers, morbidity ,complications are monitored and assessed. All facilities are certified every 3 years by the High Authority of Health – HAS with public access to findings and conclusions. Risk management and quality are a main preoccupation and the proof of this policy is mandatory in the certification process. One of the main concerns about Medical Travel is the control of Health Care associated infection. The French HAS publish annual results and statistics for every hospital in France, data is made public and may be viewed on the French HAS Web Site. All data is validated by European centre for disease prevention and control. Public and private hospitals are of course liability insured for International patients. All physicians need to register with the French Medical Council. Depending on their diplomas and degree course, the French Medical Council authorises the practice of a speciality within strict guidelines. The particular aspect of liability in private practice imply that French doctors have to be a graduate in France, otherwise they cannot obtain insurance against Malpractice. French medical graduation is one of the most famous and is very demanding. The level of training is very high, with at least six years for general medicine, five more years of residency to qualify as a medical specialist and at least 3 more years for a Surgeon. All professionals have a personal professional liability insurance with very high coverage standards. Subscription to this insurance is mandatory to join any hospital or medical team. An essential requirement is made to continuous medical education. France has a very ancient culture of CME to adapt practices to progress and to advance new technologies. So all physicians are really up to date in their technique and practice. State regulation and regional competition have led to very homogeneous standards all over the territory. The same quality of care may be found from Britain to Italian borders. Pluridisciplinary facilities are mainly very modern and fully equipped responding to the highest standards of certification.

What is weight loss surgery about? Obesity is a chronic disease. It can lead to difficulties in everyday life. It may also be affecting your general health and cause diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, sleep apnoea ... Obesity surgery, often referred to as bariatric surgery, has been developed to help you lose weight permanently and control the diseases caused by obesity. However, to have surgery is an important decision and should only be made once all alternatives have been assessed. The Hospitals and clinics that are partners with France SURGERY are all recognised European Centres of Excellence in bariatric surgery by the EAC-BS European Accreditation Council for Bariatric Surgery.

Check Up Center


Which Check-up? For who? When? An unhealthy lifestyle can have an impact on your general health. After 40 - 45, the risks of cardiovascular diseases and cancers increase. Advanced examinations will therefore target these conditions. French hospitals propose standard and customised check ups adapted to each patient using the latest in preventive medicine and early diagnosis techniques.



Diagnosis and treatment of diseases affecting the kidneys, male reproductive system and urinary system. Robotic (DA VINCI) prostatectomy, stress urinary incontinence, Transuretral Resection of the Prostate (TURP), Ureteroscopic Stone Removal, Green Laser (PVP), Lithotrity …



THYROIDECTOMY What is a Thyroidectomy? The thyroid is an endocrine gland which produces hormones controlling different bodies’ functions. To some extent it can be compared to the body’s general thermostat: When over performing, it triggers pulse acceleration, bowel movement acceleration, weight loss, excitation and aggressiveness. When Under performing, it triggers pulse slowdown, constipation, weight increase, Memory troubles and dépression signs. The thyroid gland can suffer from minor disease or cancer. Up to 10% of people may suffer from a minor thyroid disease (goitre, nodule, hypo or hyperthyroidism) Cancer represents 10 to 12 % of thyroid’s tumour, which explains complete screening prior of deciding for a surgery. Prognostic is very good in more than 90% of cases. The surgery called “thyroidectomy” is performed under general anaesthesia. It consists in removing part or all of the thyroid gland. Incision is done in the neck’s fold to hide the scar as much as possible. If a cancer is suspected, an anatomo-pathologist doctor present during surgery will perform an immediate preliminary analysis of the removed nodule which will help the surgeon decide if a total gland removal is required, reducing the risk to have to perform another surgery later on. If it only is a toxic nodule (e.g. which over produces hormones), only half of thyroid removal will be necessary.



MEDICAL EXCELLENCE FRENCH HEALTHCARE SYSTEM It is one of the highest ranked health systems in the world and often the first in terms of population health level and infrastructures. This system is patient centered with a policy of equal access for all citizens which ensures a high standard of care and consistency in the services provided across the health facilities Network. PATIENTS-DOCTORS RELATIONSHIPS System focused on the Patient-Doctor relationship with a strong personalisation of care protocols. Patients are free to choose their doctor as well as their General Practitioner and Medical specialists or Surgeons. Doctors and surgeons pay attention to the particular wishes and needs of the patient and their family. France is already a multicultural country familiar with and committed to respecting everyone, regardless of culture and religion. France is innovative and leading the way in terms of advanced medical technologies. NO WAITING LIST The high density hospital network and the large number of physicians ensures a high availability level for all kinds of procedures, medical treatments andsurgery, there’s usually no or very short waiting lists. More than 2100 facilities offer care to the population, with the majority of hospitals being multi-disciplinary and familiar with various kinds of pathologies. Access to public or private practice is the same in terms of refunding healthcare costs for French patients and all European union Citizens. SYSTEM OPEN TO INTERNATIONAL PATIENTS The French Healthcare System is open to International patients. Many foreign residents and medical travellers are already taking advantage of excellent health facilities all over France... MEDICAL EXPENSES Payment or refunding may vary depending on the patient status and citizenship, however rates for hospital stays are fixed by the French government. Rates are the same all over the French territory as long as the facility is subsidised and certified by the health administration. Everybody has heard about the French « way of life », luxury, wine and fashion, but who really knows the French Healthcare System ? We frequently hear very good feedback about the healthcare system, however it seems that foreign people view it as a closed system, reserved for the French population and not easily accessible. It is difficult to obtain information about the most renowned medical teams andthe most effective healthcare facilities. No publication or ranking is easily accessible from a foreign country and especially in a foreign language. When discussing one’s own medical case, one has to ask the question of data confidentiality and security, and it’s impossible to know if the required travel is possible, if the considered procedure is conceivable and what the level of at no risk ? How to avoid a last minute cancellation ? And finally consideration for the logistics in a foreign country, communication in another language, even though the majority of French healthcare professionals speak and understand English…  



ONCOLOGY AND HAEMATOLOGY PERSONALISED CARE ADHERING TO THE LATEST CANCER TREATMENTS PROTOCOLS The medical team that supports you is made up of internationally renowned healthcare professionals from different areas of specialty. They work within the health care facility where you receive your treatment and in connection with your doctors. Your support is comprehensive and includes care and additional support you may need during and after your treatment (psychological, fatigue management, advice on your diet ...). Cancer Screening and Early Detection Screening is a process that aims to identify, at the earliest and in the absence of symptoms, lesions that may be cancerous or develop into cancer. The value of screening is that cancer can be detected earlier, patients can be provided with better care and the impact of treatment is reduced. For all requests, you must first send us a completed medical record via our secure platform as well as your medical history. This will allow us to put you in touch with the best French specialists who can discuss the treatments options suitable for you. Incomplete or unreadable medical documents will not be accepted. Choose an institution To be allowed to treat cancer, French healthcare institutions have to meet a number of conditions that are a guarantee that you to be well supported.

EXCELLENCE MEDICALE L'OMS a classé le système de santé français n° 1 mondial. Ce classement reflète l'expertise qu'offrent les médecins et chirurgiens aux patients qui sont soignés en France. La France innove et ouvre la voie en matière de technologies médicales de pointe. Le système de santé français est un savant mélange d’acteurs publics et privés (prestataires, assureurs). L’assurance maladie, financée par les contributions des salariés et des employeurs mais aussi par les taxes est obligatoire. Elle couvre presque toute la population, la complémentaire santé privée est, elle, facultative. Le système de santé français a atteint son objectif en couvrant tout le territoire et en permettant l’accès aux soins sans liste d’attente, le choix et la satisfaction de tous les patients. LE SYSTÈME DE SANTÉ FRANÇAIS Ce système est centré sur la relation médecin-patient avec une forte personnalisation des protocoles de soins. Les patients sont libres de choisir leur médecin ainsi que leurs spécialistes. Avec un réseau d’établissements de santé très dense, un grand nombre de médecins assurent un niveau de disponibilité élevé pour toutes sortes de traitements médicaux et de chirurgies : il n’y a généralement que peu voire pas de liste d'attente. Plus de 2100 établissements de santé sont recensés, la majorité étant multi- disciplinaires et donc familiarisés avec différents types de pathologies. Les tarifs d’hospitalisation sont fixés par le gouvernement français pour tous les établissements qu’ils soient publics ou privés. L'accès aux établissements publics ou privées est le même en termes de coûts de santé et de remboursement pour les patients français et tous les citoyens de l'Union européenne. La Haute Autorité de Santé française (organisme d’Etat accrédité par l’ISQUIA) émet de très hautes exigences de qualité de soins auxquels les établissements de santé français doivent se conformer pour être accrédités. DES CLINIQUES ET HOPITAUX TRÈS PERFORMANTS Cliniques et hôpitaux à la pointe des techniques de soin et des technologies médicales qui offrent le maximum de sécurité, évalués et accrédités par la Haute Autorité de Santé (HAS). Ils offrent également d'excellentes conditions en termes d'accueil, de confort, d'hygiène, de sécurité et correspondent aux normes européennes. Ces établissements sont tous équipés d'une unité de soins intensifs. Les établissements de santé utilisent des technologies de pointe et travaillent en collaboration avec des chirurgiens de réputation nationale voire internationale. Tous les établissements répondent à la préconisation de surveillance des vecteurs d’infections nosocomiales appelée ICALIN (Indice Composite des Activités de Luttes contre les Infections Nosocomiales) et subissent un classement annuel, publié en ce qui concerne le contrôle des soins infections nosocomiales (Données validées par l'ECDC) CHIRURGIENS, MÉDECINS ET ÉQUIPES SOIGNANTES Chirurgiens et médecins expérimentés, inscrits au Conseil National de l'Ordre des Médecins, qui participent activement au développement et à l'amélioration des compétences dans leurs spécialités médicales au travers d'études cliniques ayant fait l'objet de publications scientifiques en France et à l'international. Inscription obligatoire des praticiens au Conseil National de l'Ordre des Médecins garantit aux patients l'application et le strict respect du Code de la Déontologie Médicale. Tous les médecins des cliniques privées françaises ont obligatoirement obtenu leur diplôme en France. Diplôme de Médecine français est l'un des niveaux de formation médicale les plus élevés au monde. La souscription à une assurance de responsabilité civile professionnelle est obligatoire pour tous les médecins. La formation médicale continue est obligatoire et systématique pour tous les médecins français. L'équipe soignante qui prend en charge le patient se compose : D'un cadre soignant responsable de l'organisation du service et de la qualité des soins. D'infirmier(e)s qui effectuent les soins et assurent 24h/24 la surveillance de votre état de santé. D'aide-soignant(e)s qui répondent aux besoins des patients par leur présence 24h / 24 et par les soins effectués sous la surveillance des infirmier(e)s. D'agents de service hospitalier pour l'entretien et l'hygiène de votre chambre PATIENTS INTERNATIONAUX Mais la question reste à savoir comment accéder au système de santé français? Tout le monde a entendu parler du «mode de vie» à la française, le luxe, le vin et la mode, mais qui connaît vraiment le système de santé français? Même s’il est considéré comme un des meilleurs systèmes au monde, les patients internationaux le considèrent comme un système fermé, réservé à la population française et pas facilement accessible. Il est difficile d'obtenir des informations sur les équipes médicales les plus renommées et les meilleurs établissements de soins. Aucune publication ou classement n’est facilement accessible depuis un pays étranger et surtout dans une langue étrangère. Le système de santé français est pourtant ouvert aux patients internationaux. Beaucoup de résidents étrangers vivant en France et de patients venus de nombreux pays profitent déjà de l'excellence des établissements de santé français…

EXCELENCIA MÉDICA La OMS ha clasificado el sistema de salud francés como n° 1 mundial. Esta clasificación refleja la pericia que brindan los médicos y cirujanos a los pacientes que están tratados en Francia. Francia innova y abre la vía en materia de tecnologías médicas de punta. El sistema de salud francés es una mezcla hábil de actores públicos y privados (prestatarios, aseguradores). El seguro enfermedad, financiado por las contribuciones de los asalariados y de los empleadores pero también por las tasas es obligatorio y cubre casi toda la población. En cambio, el seguro complementario de salud, privado, es opcional. El sistema de salud francés ha logrado su objetivo al cubrir todo el territorio y al permitir el acceso a los cuidados sin lista de espera, la posibilidad de elegir y la satisfacción de todos los pacientes. EL SISTEMA DE SALUD FRANCES Este sistema se concentra sobre la relación médico/paciente con fuerte personalización de los protocolos de cuidados. Los pacientes tienen libertad para elegir a su médico así como a sus especialistas. Con una red de establecimientos de salud muy densa, un gran número de médicos garantizan un nivel de disponibilidad elevado para toda clase de tratamientos médicos y cirugías: en general no hay lista de espera o casi. Se cuenta con más de 2100 establecimientos de salud, siendo en su mayoría pluridisciplinarios y por lo tanto familiarizados con diferentes tipos de patologías. Las tarifas de hospitalización están establecidas por el Gobierno Francés para todos los establecimientos, públicos o privados. El acceso a los establecimientos públicos o privados es el mismo en términos de costos de salud y de reembolso para los pacientes franceses y todos los ciudadanos de la Unión Europea. La Alta Autoridad de Salud Francesa (organismo Gubernamental autorizado por el ISQUIA) emite exigencias de calidad muy elevadas para los cuidados a las que los establecimientos de salud franceses han de conformarse para ser acreditados. CLÍNICAS Y HOSPITALES MUY EFICIENTES Clínicas y hospitales a la punta de las técnicas de cuidado y tecnologías médicas que ofrecen una seguridad máxima, evaluados y acreditados por la Alta Autoridad de Salud (Haute Autorité de Santé (HAS)). Ofrecen también excelentes condiciones en términos de acogida, de confort, de higiene, de seguridad y cumplen con las normas europeas. Estos establecimientos vienen todos equipados de una unidad de cuidados intensivos. Los establecimientos de salud utilizan tecnologías de punta y trabajan en colaboración con cirujanos de fama mundial e internacional. Todos los establecimientos cumplen con la preconización de vigilancia de los vectores de infecciones nosocomiales llamada ICALIN (Indice Composite des Activités de Lutte contre les Infections Nosocomiales/Índice Composite de las Actividades de Lucha contra las Infecciones Nosocomiales) y están sujetos a una clasificación anual publicada, en cuanto al control de los cuidados de infecciones nosocomiales (Datos validados por el ECDC) CIRUJANOS, MÉDICOS Y PERSONAL SANITARIO Cirujanos y médicos experimentados, inscritos en el Consejo Nacional del Colegio de Médicos francés, que participan activamente en el desarrollo y la mejora de las competencias en sus especialidades médicas a través de estudios clínicos que fueron objeto de publicaciones científicas tanto en Francia como en el mundo. La inscripción obligatoria de los profesionales en el Consejo Nacional del Colegio de Médicos (Conseil National de l'Ordre des Médecins) garantiza a los pacientes la aplicación y el estricto cumplimiento del Código de Deontología Médica. Todos los médicos de las clínicas privadas francesas han sacado obligatoriamente su diploma en Francia. El Diploma de Medicina francés es uno de los niveles de formación médica más elevado en el mundo. Es obligatoria para todos los médicos la suscripción de un seguro de responsabilidad civil profesional. Es obligatoria y sistemática para todos los médicos franceses la formación médica continua. El personal sanitario que toma a cargo al paciente está compuesta por: Un profesional sanitario titulado responsable de la organización del servicio y de la calidad de los cuidados. Enfermeros/as que efectúan los cuidados y aseguran 24h al día la vigilancia de su estado de salud. Auxiliares de enfermería que satisfacen las necesidades de los pacientes por su presencia 24h al día y por los cuidados efectuados bajo la vigilancia de los/las enfermeros/as. Agentes de servicio hospitalario para la limpieza y el higiene de su habitación PACIENTES INTERNACIONALES Pero lo que queda por saber es ¿cómo tener acceso al sistema de salud francés? Todo el mundo ha oído hablar del «modo de vida a la francesa, lujo, vino y moda », pero ¿quién conoce verdaderamente el sistema de salud francés? Aun que sea considerado como uno de los mejores sistemas del mundo, los pacientes internacionales lo consideran como un sistema cerrado, reservado a la población francesa y no fácil de acceso. Es difícil conseguir informaciones acerca de los equipos médicos más famosos y los mejores establecimientos de cuidados médicos. Ninguna publicación o clasificación es fácil de acceso desde un país extranjero y sobre todo en un idioma extranjero. Sin embargo, el sistema de salud francés está abierto a los pacientes internacionales. Muchos residentes extranjeros que viven en Francia y muchos pacientes oriundos de numerosos países se benefician ya de la excelencia de los establecimientos de salud franceses…
