If you have an emergency here, do you go to the hospital or the doctors? Or in fact the health centre? Bit confusing the system here. I am registered as resident here, but have not been allocated a doctor. I'm aware there is a shortage of doctors, but the wait at the health centre concerns me. It's OK for routine things, but not for real emergencies.

Does anybody have any baby boys things? I gave away absolutely EVERYTHING to charity before I came out, not expecting to be "expecting" quite so soon. My little guy is due in Sept. All I've bought with me is the cot, play pen, three wheeler (minus the infant car seat) and toys suitable for a 2 year old! If anybody knows of anyone who wants to "recycle" their growing bubbies' things, I would gladly take them off their hands. PS, very very impressed with the Portuguese maternity care!

Hi Is it possible to get calpol over the counter in Portugal or if not is there an equivalent? I usually get friends and family to bring some when they come over but im nearly running out, so would be easier to buy it here. Thanks in advance.

Has anyone else had trouble enrolling for state schools or nurseries here? We enrolled our son, who will be 2 in May, over a year ago so he could go this Sept, but rang up today to see if there was any possibilty, but absolutley no chance, the list is so long! As they give priority to siblings that are already in the school. I really dont want to go down the private school route as, a, its really expensive and b, i want him interact with the locals and learn the language. What did you do? did you wait until they were school age and bypass nursery or did you go private? Thanks in advance

Hi All Just wandered if anyone knows any good schools around Silves, Amarcao de Pera, Pera and surrounding areas.
