New ambulance station for Peyia

A new ambulance station in Peyia will be up and running in a month.

Peyia Mayor Neophytos Akousiotis said he has been informed by the health ministry the station will open on January 19.

The mayor on Tuesday stressed the importance and usefulness of the new service as Peyia has many visitors and the distance to the Paphos general hospital is considerable.

It currently takes an ambulance 25 minutes to get to Peyia from Paphos and the same time to take a patient back to the first aid department of the hospital.

The new station will be located in the centre of the village, just below the police station and in the same block of houses as the fire station.

It will serve as a regional station for neighbouring communities.
