Three groups

Financial Mirror (Cyprus) - - CYPRUS -

As of Wed­nes­day, hos­pi­tals and health cen­ters through­out Cyprus are sep­a­rated into three ge­o­graph­i­cal groups, with OKYPY of­fi­cially tak­ing over.

The three groups are the Ni­cosia Dis­trict, which in­clude the cap­i­tal’s Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal, the Makar­ios Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal and all health cen­ters of the city and its dis­trict, the Li­mas­sol-Paphos re­gion, which in­clude the Li­mas­sol Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal, the Paphos Hos­pi­tal, the ru­ral hos­pi­tals of Kyper­ounta and Po­lis Chryso­c­hous, as well as all the health cen­tres of the two dis­tricts, and fi­nally, the Lar­nacaFa­m­a­gusta re­gion, which in­clude the Lar­naca and Par­al­imni hos­pi­tals and all health cen­tres op­er­at­ing in the two prov­inces.

The bud­get ap­proved by the House for the health min­istry will be trans­ferred to the OKYPY so as to have the nec­es­sary fund­ing to go ahead with the proper staffing of nurs­ing homes and health cen­tres.

OKYPY is ex­pected to start pre­par­ing the coun­try’s hos­pi­tals and health cen­tres for their smooth tran­si­tion to the GHS in six months’ time, as of 1 June 2019.
