Availability & cost of health care
If you need an ambulance, call 119 in the Republic of Cyprus. Pharmacies can dispense medicines that are available only on prescription in most European countries, so you can consult a pharmacist for minor ailments.

grannyEmergency medical treatment and assistance is provided free of charge at government hospitals or medical institutions. However, payment of the prescribed fees is required for outpatient and inpatient treatment. Make sure your medical insurance covers any emergency.
Hospitals can be overcrowded and hygiene is not always what it should be. Conditions and treatment are better in private hospitals, but these are expensive. All this means that a good health-insurance policy is essential.
If you need medical help:

Ammochostos - 1433

candlesLarnaka - 1434
Lefkosia - 1432
Lemesos - 1435
Paphos - 1436
