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.

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.

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 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.

Geoff
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!

OR are you that mean?

We will have to consider demoting you to the lower deck (again )

All in jest, keep posting your quirky bits [No! I don't want to see them]

Mark993 We found the EHIC card worked very well in Spain when my partner cracked her ribs. Hospital told us the cards make it much easier than when people come in with an insurance policy.
