As if you have the slightest clue what world class medical facilities are like!

Unfortunately for you it is not in the 'press'. The womans daughter told me. She is English and probably doesnt know where Cyprus is yet alone have an opinion on the cyprob. She told me in passing, thats all.


Perhaps they are sending patients who are likely to die, so not to face with malpractice law suits in the UK, they are sending them to the "trnc". It has nothing to do with recognition. It has to do with deferring their possible problems to a place that is not recognized nor can they sue anyone there. Personally if I were a patient in the UK, I would refuse such an option from them.

Who will they send next, their prisoners, and school children, old age pensioners, the unemployed...........! :lol:

Economy class patients? I dunno. There is a deal somwhere, but who cares. A service is provided and a patient is there. Free or discounted I dont care. The lady is having a wonderful holiday in the RoC.

The chances are that those at the NHS involved do not have any more clue than the lady's daughter about where Cyprus is and and what the Cyprob is all about - probably few Brits do - one very common misconception for example is that Cyprus is a part of Greece and many are very surprised to learn (a) it is an independant Republic and (b) 37% is illegally occupied by Turkey.

Take a look at:

http://www.neu.edu.tr/?q=en

"The Innovation and Information Technologies Center is the only one founded in the region including Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Central Asia and Northern Africa. The new super computer assembled in the Center, with its advanced platform, is ranked 76th in the world, 13th amongst the ones owned by certain developed countries and is ranked 10th amongst the universities in the world."

Looking at this, I'd say they have just about everything.

From... List of unrecognized higher education accreditation organizations

Many, but not all, of the entities in the list below are considered to be fraudulent accreditation mills that were set up to help diploma mills lure students and whose "accreditation" has no legal or academic value. Some other listed entities are religious accreditors, whose accreditation may have doctrinal significance but lacks recognized academic value.[7] Also included are some organizations that do not offer educational accreditation but have been falsely identified as accrediting bodies by organizations that claim to have been accredited by them. A notable example of this last type is UNESCO. UNESCO has no authority to recognize or accredit higher education institutions or agencies.[5] Nonetheless, because diploma mills have claimed false UNESCO accreditation, UNESCO itself has published warnings against education organizations that claim UNESCO recognition or affiliation.
