Cyprus Embraces Medical Tourism



Cyprus Embraces Medical Tourism

Cyprus is hoping to lure tourists interested in affordable medical care and modern facilities as the island attempts to position itself as a hot-spot for foreign patients seeking procedures. The Ministry of Health granted temporary licenses to doctors from third countries who are interested in providing treatments and performing operations to foreign patients in Cyprus, provided that these medical treatments are not practiced by Cypriot doctors. Deputy Government Spokesman Victoras Papadopoulos said that the Council of Ministers were informed about this decision, which has been taken in the framework of efforts to promote medical tourism in Cyprus. He noted that licenses will be issued as long a certain preconditions set by the Medical Council are met. Papadopoulos said that the Health Ministry and Cyprus Medical Association would have a constant cooperation so that Cypriot doctors can benefit from this plan, through their further training in operations and medical practices, which are not provided in Cyprus.
