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.
