Health services are good in North Cyprus and there are good hospitals and medical facilities. Visitors to Northern Cyprus do not require any medical treatments prior to entry.
The prices for medications can range from well below UK price to more than triple. The Central State Hospital is in Nicosia and there are other smaller hospitals in Kyrenia, Famagusta, Guzelyurt and Lefke. There are also clinics in smaller towns and some villages. The medical treatment in the hospitals is free of charge.
There are many English-speaking doctors who have their own private clinics, but medical treatment is not cheap so holiday insurance is necessary in this case.
Most upset stomachs are caused by a mixture of too much sun, alcohol an a change in the diet. Imodium quickly disposes of the problem. Some people have a nasty reaction to mosquito and sand fly bites. Try rubbing anti-histamine cream on the affected part.
A good sun block lotion should be used and direct sunlight on the head should be avoided. Take plenty of non-alcoholic drinks throughout the day.
Snake bites are rare but should the worst happen, cover the bite with a cloth. Apply a tourniquet above the bite if it is on a limb but not so tight as to cut the blood supply off. Seek medical attention immediately. There is alwasy a pharmacy on duty at nights and during holidays in every big city in North Cypurs.
