They have their own budgets and decide their own priorities.

I have never been here 3 months - continuously. I neither rent nor own a property here. So I am a 'visitor' entitled to use my EHIC.
The authorities make the rules - I abide by them.

Sorry, forgot to add thanks for the well wishes - think it is not major problem just wanted to check before it might have got acute.

Sorry, not trying to be judgemental or prying, just thought you were permanently resident there and didn't understand how your EHIC worked. Now it makes perfect sense!

Dick I feel they are getting to much money If England were to run out of money we would all have to pay.If wales or Scotland run out westminster would bail them out

OK ...the truth I felt she wanted me just for my body but I wanted her to want me for my inner self and mind. I am not just a piece of meat to be toyed with.

Mind you. She had nice tits.

I want to die quietly in my sleep like my Uncle did. Not screaming and shouting like his passengers.

Not strictly true Rod. That is the price in England. Prescriptions are free to all here in Scotland.

As for the level of care you received. I have had the pleasure of Polish Doctors work for me; I have found them to be extremely professional and knowledgeable medics who were a pleasure to work with.

I currently have a Polish Dentist who shows the same level of professionalism.

If you are receiving a UK State Pension you will apply to UK for EHIC, if you are not receiving a UK State Pension and you are in the French Health System (Carte Vitale) then you apply to your local CPAM (Social Security). You can apply for both of these online and the UK EHIC will be sent to you in France. The system changed in May 2010.

The beauty of having a UK EHIC is that it lasts 5 years but the French one only lasts for 1 year so you have to reply every year.
