This is the usual anti-Turkish propaganda.

People should ask why identical medicines are so much more expensive in the Republic?

When I'm in the UK I get my BP tabs from the chemist at about a third of the price I pay in Cyprus. I expect they're a risk to public health as well!


With respect, but propaganda it is not and why shouldn't be anti Turkish, all those that shop cheaply in the illegally occupied areas expect the hospitals and doctors this side to be there at there every beck and and call. So who is going to pay for those?? You would all be the first to complain if you didn't get the treatment you required.


Correct me if I'm wrong (well I suppose anything's possible Cool ) but I thought that the cost of any treatment for us ex pats was repaid to Cyprus by Britain! Confused


I was waiting for your pathetic response as a Turk supporter, yes you are right, it may well be covered by the UK, so who's going to pay the hospitals and doctors to administer this treatment that your government will pay for??

Oh and here's another thought, a long shot all the same, so after BREXIT, what if this cross country agreement stops, who's going to pay for your treatment then??? Turkey???


Well, not wishing to be pathetic, but I was under the impression that the hospitals and doctors were paid for by general taxation - you know, which we all contribute to!😀

As for your second thought (which did prevent your first from being lonely!) as has been so often stated elsewhere, who knows what will happen post Brexit but the best guess is there will be reciprocal agreements between the UK and Cyprus! Very Happy

I stand to be corrected on this matter , however I can find nothing stating that the cost of medical treatment is retrieved from the UK . Yes people using the European medical card but not for anyone with permanent residency .
Please feel free to point me in the direction of the relevant information

If you do your research these medicines are not only surfacing in the North, and they are mainly being distributed via the middle east. There is a good possibilty that some of these counterfeit medicines are also being sold unknowingly on this side of the island as well. Like someone has already said there are some medicines which are not available on this side but they are in the North.

"Agreement so far on the rights of UK nationals in the EU
The UK and EU Commission have so far agreed that:

UK nationals and their family members covered by the agreement will continue to have the same access as they currently do to healthcare, pensions and other benefits."
