Review fuels changes

Hospital services in North Cyprus are undergoing major changes, following a review by Leeds Medical School general manager Peter Noble. North Cyprus spends 23% of its overall expenditure on overseas referrals and only 3% of its doctors are GPs.

Mr Noble conducted a thorough review of hospital services, and made recommendations to improve the management of emergency care and allow hospitals to take greater control of their own affairs

He has also been involved in evaluating a healthcare programme in Samara, Russia, where life expectancy has dropped from 70 to 58 over the past ten years.
