The new healthcare system has delivered positive outcomes, particularly since the introduction of an on-call doctor scheme in Cyprus in July 2023. According to Effie Kamitsi, the head of the Health Insurance Organization, Healthcare Centers are operating steadily, providing a reliable point of contact for those in need of medical assistance. She also noted that there is typically a surge in patient numbers during the winter months, driven by viral infections.

It is important to note that on-call doctors are available to see patients on Saturdays, Sundays, and public holidays from 11:00 to 17:00, a measure designed to alleviate pressure on emergency departments which are typically inundated with requests for healthcare outside of regular hours.

The GESY website provides a monthly list of on-call doctors, medical centers, and hospitals where they are practicing, serving as a valuable resource for those seeking medical attention.
