Private Hospitals in Cyprus

Private Hospitals in Cyprus

The Cyprus healthcare system consists of state-funded public services which are inexpensive or free for low income citizens of Cyprus and the EU. Private health services are relatively cheap in comparison to countries like the UK and they are readily available for everyone. Emergency medical treatment in Cyprus is free all citizens. Most of the doctors who run these private facilities are specialists in their field having studied and trained abroad in some of the most prestigious medical universities.  Most of the doctors speak English and that is one of the reasons we have so many expats from the UK living on the island.


Medical Tourism in Cyprus

Medical Tourism in Cyprus

Modern private hospitals and clinics, with state of the art equipment and experienced, highly trained doctors and medical staff, have been the reason why Cyprus has become a popular destination for medical tourism.  Specialist doctors who have trained in Europe and the USA are at the head of the medical teams that perform all types of medical procedures at very reasonable prices. There is also the draw of combining a medical procedure with a relaxing holiday that will help you recuperate in a country that is an idyllic destination. Some of the most popular procedures done on the island are annual check-ups, reconstructive or cosmetic surgery, cardiac care and dental and surgical procedures. Many of the private clinics offer special packages that also include hotel accommodation for the recuperation period.


Casinos in Cyprus

Casinos in Cyprus

The debate on whether to open a Casino has been going on for decades. The biggest opponent has always been the Church of Cyprus who feared that opening a casino would destroy family life in Cyprus. It seems that finally the pros and cons have been weighed and the pros of having casinos in Cyprus have won. It is true to say that most Cypriots are born gamblers and it is inevitable that some families will suffer, but the government cannot be responsible for their woes. It makes economic sense to open the casinos as they will be contributing to the increase in tourism and to the economy of Cyprus as a whole. The other plus is that these casinos will create new jobs for the Cypriot community.
