The healthcare in Cyprus is extremely efficient and available to all EU residents. The E111 or E128 forms are required and these are easily obtained from your post office. Although there is no national health system in Cyprus, the cost of medical treatment in government hospitals is low. Those wishing to consult medical experts privately will get a choice of competent doctors, specialists and surgeons practising on the island. The minimum charge for a consultation is CY 10. The standard of treatment is high and continuously improving. Additionally, a number of companies offer medical insurance that are tailored to individual needs.
