If you fall ill and need medical help there is no need to worry as Northern Cyprus is well equipped with three state hospitals and numerous private hospitals and clinics.
For a visitor attending the casualty department of the state hospitals you will first need to pay 10TL (£4.00) before you see a Doctor. English is widely spoken and all staff are fully trained in their line of work.
The private hospitals generally have the same facilities as the state hospitals but you have a private room with ensuite. The cost of private health care is considerately lower than the UK and the treatment is excellent.
For minor problems the local pharmacies ( Locally know as Eczane) and recognized by the universal red cross sign outside their shops, can deal with most complaints and can dispense most medication over the counter.
Most dentists on the Island have state of the art equipment where emergency work can be carried out quickly and treatment is a fraction of the cost of that of the UK.
