dc.description.abstractConsidering investing in a medical tourism venture? Planning the next healthcare city? Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it. This is a story of a medical tourism 'white elephant' that became an NHS hospital.In the early 1990s, a private-sector, purpose-built hospital designed to attract international medical tourists to Scotland did develope into a centre of medical excellence - but one wholly owned and managed by the National Health Service in Scotland (NHS), and not as originally intended as an international centre for medical tourism.
