The Health System
Medical care is provided by the government medical services and the private medical sector. The government medical services can be used by anyone who chooses to be treated at a medical institution.

The government medical services provide treatment free of charge or at reduced charges for certain groups of individuals. More information can be obtained from the Ministry of Health.

Emergency care is provided free to all persons who arrive at the accident and emergency departments of the government hospitals. Every city has its own hospital with an accident and emergency department

Persons who opt for the private sector pay the costs themselves. Certain population groups are covered by trade union or employer insurance funds which provide full or partial cover of medical costs for the members. Many doctors run their own private surgeries. In addition many doctors work at city health centres which provide a wide range of medical services (including dentistry, optometry and other health-related services such as laboratory analysis, radiology and chiropody etc.).

All districts now have a new hospital, most recently the Nicosia district. Tertiary medicine, in particular, has undergone substantial development in recent years, and as a result patients who used to be sent abroad for treatment are now being treated in Cyprus. The size of the country makes for easy and swift access to medical centres.
