North Cyprus – Health Care Review – My Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Treatment – By Kathy Martin


Health Care Review

My Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Treatment

KathyBy Kathy Martin…

July 2016

Decided after ten years, it would be a good idea to have a Neurology check-up on my Multiple Sclerosis (MS). I was diagnosed by Dr T Fowler DM FRCP at the Nuffield Hospital in Tunbridge Wells on 23rdMarch 2006. At the time I declined any immune-modulating treatment as I do not like taking medication!

My first comment JUST has to be how much easier and quicker things happen here in The Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC), admittedly when one is paying, rather than on the NHS in UK! Of course, paying privately in the UK would probably be just as quick, but from friends’ comments more expensive!

Friday 1st July

She carried out various minor procedures to check on my ability to read small print, see spotty numbers etc, etc.

This has been arranged for Tuesday 12th July, the delay is only because there was a one week Bayram holiday in TRNC the following week!

Also, had blood extracted for various blood tests.

Due to my MS, I was pushed around the whole hospital in various wheelchairs and each “pusher” was very considerate and helpful……  Continue reading

There were many people there covering different aspects of health and wellbeing as well as stalls with crystals and jewellery.  Cemal Boransel, the owner of Aphrodite Restaurant, was mingling with the guests in his normal welcoming way, such a nice man who dresses in traditional Cypriot costume which adds a certain flavour to his restaurant.

The decision has been approved by the Council of Ministers.

Prime Minister Özgürgün added: “We will not make the slightest concession with regards to the FETO. We will continue our investigations in close cooperation with Turkey’s intelligence service.”
