After an accident which resulted in nearly losing the tip of my big toe and the nail being ripped right back to the nail bed. I would just like to say I was seen immediatley and the wound dealt with. also received a tetnus jab.
Gerry (the nurse) asked for my E111 which i still have not got he said that was ok they just needed my details and passport and the bill would be sent to the UK.
You can find the hospital easy just drive towards DEryhnia and just after petra house you will see a sign to turn right follow the road until you see the sign at the left turn, its an old hospital but I understand the new one is being built .
Staff were excellent and so nice to go in and be seen right away.
Two of my grandsons had to visit the hospital after only being 6 weeks in Cyprus. One caught his hand when fishing which went septic. He ended up in hospital on a drip. The second broke his arm after only two days at school. My daughter got this through her insurance.
I have the new E111 so it's nice to know that treatment is available.
I am going over for 2 or 3 months and was wondering whether I should extend my travel insurance to cover this or perhaps just rely on the E111 cover.
I get free travel insurance through the Lloydstsb, but this only covers you for 31days as does most travel insurance.
another thing that I am not sure about is Household Insurance. I believe that the same applies ie: that the property must not be left empty for more than 31days
The treatment on the E111 is for minor injuries. as far as i am aware. I would make sure my travel insurance covers me for the whole of the stay. i do know they ask for to look at your tickets if you need to claim.
As for the house insurance i know the broker asked me how long it would be empty we gave him an approx time. not sure what it was now will need to check when i renew next month
the EHIC card (replacing E111 form) is designed for emergency treatment while abroad. It should be valid for about one year but may depend on the individual's circumstances. For full cover, surely better to have private insurance as well I wd have thought.
We had to take my mother up to the new Paralimni hospital when we were there in June. She was seen and x-rayed straight away and we were out of there after her treatment and with her prescription drugs withing 45 mins.
