Doctors, Chemists & Emergencies

Visits, fees & opening hours

There are many private doctors in Cyprus, and clinics are usually open from 9am to 1pm and from 4 to 7pm, Mondays to Fridays.

Doctors charge around €15 to €20 for a consultation and the cost of most treatment is around half that in northern European countries. Almost all brands of medicines are available in Cyprus and pharmacists are highly qualified (and usually speak English). They can provide medical advice and treatment for minor ailments. Local newspapers list chemists’ that are open during the night or at weekends and holidays, along with the names and numbers of doctors who are on call out of hours.

There are also area-specific numbers that you can ring out of hours to obtain information about private doctors who are on call and chemists’ that are open (or you can ring 192 for information). These are as follows:
