3rd Kraków Medical Tourism Congress

In recent years, Poland has become one of the most popular tourism destinations among tourists from Great Britain, Germany, Sweden and Norway who look for highly specialized medical services during their travel.
Kraków has been recognized as one of the most desirable destinations. It is therefore anything but a coincidence that the annual Medical Tourism Congress was held in Kraków for the third time. The Congress’ purpose is to realise the full medical potential in creating tourism products. This year’s edition took place on 22nd and 23rd October 2018 at the International Conferences and Entertainment Centre.



Medical services may qualify as travel services supplied to a traveller within the meaning of the Polish Act on Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements. This raises a question of distribution of liability for the quality of medical services provided by healthcare entities. Who can be held responsible for medical malpractice when the medical service is provided within the framework of a package travel or when it has been purchased by a patient as a linked travel arrangement? How to ensure safety of medical tourism market participants without losing sight of what is most important – the safety and comfort of the patient-traveller? A team of the BFP attorneys – Atty. Dorota Kulig, Atty. Jolanta Budzowska and Atty. Michał Sikora - offered answers to these questions during their speech delivered as part of the Congress: “Legal responsibility for services provided in the scope of medical tourism in view of the Act on Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements of 2017”.
