Cancer sufferers better off in Turkey than the UK?

The Daily Mail reports that cancer rates in the UK are among the lowest in Europe. The article surmises that countries like Turkey and Slovakia are better at treating cancer - thanks to a greater number of scanners in those countries.

This won't come as a surprise to anyone living in Turkey. The country has been attracting big dollars from health tourists from the US and Europe over the past year. The quality of care and equipment is the best you'll find anywhere.
Of course, Turkey lacks the wonderful National Health Service that has done Britain proud. But most who live in Turkey agree that the cost of living offsets the health insurance premiums you end up paying for such quality care.
