Our conclusion summarises our principal arguments and addresses the role of the neoliberalism and austerity in producing a globalising healthcare market. The chapter draws on one case in detail, that of Leigh from Australia who sadly died from medical complications after returning home from Malaysia, having undergone multiple procedures. Leigh’s case highlights some of the risks of travelling abroad for treatment. But it also illustrates many of the reasons that patient-consumers are prepared to take that risk in a neoliberal culture of declining national healthcare where health and happiness is constructed as being in our own hands.
