In London, the Well being Minister is discussing the potential opening of a hepatology clinic in Cyprus


Health Minister Michalis Hatzipantela held meetings in London this week aimed at opening a hepatology and gastroenterology clinic in Cyprus.

A ministry announcement on Saturday also said Hadjipantela had held talks with management at Royal Free and Royal Marsden hospitals, as well as Exeter University Medical School.

The ultimate goal is to find common ground for collaboration in the treatment of liver and gastroenterology diseases, the announcement said.

The ministry wants to build a supportive framework for the establishment of this clinic in Cyprus, to be staffed with specialized medical staff, it added.

Discussions also focused on ways to treat complicated or difficult oncology cases together and how medical schools in Cyprus could play a role in this effort.

The training exchange for students and scientific staff was also a topic.
