Take out medical insurance before you come. The costs of necessary treatment soon mounts up, whether in State run hospitals or private clinic, I repeat, take out medical insurance.

Most doctors on the island speak good English, as they will have been trained abroad in an English speaking country or an Eastern ex Soviet block country. You will find them in the yellow pages phone directory under Medical Practitioners. docbag.gif (920 bytes)

Laboratories are many and quick in Cyprus, you can have blood and other tests, X-rays , scans and whatever other medical procedures are available in England at a fraction of the cost without a waiting list.

Opticians are also many, cheaper than many other European countries and quick, so if you wear glasses or contact lenses you will find yourself with a very useful bargain.
There is always a late night chemist open in every town, they take it in turns and you can find a list in any newspaper, see especially the Cyprus Weekly sold on a Friday from most kiosks, and the Cyprus Mail, a daily publication also in English.
