Hello everyone! I recently joined AngloInfo and did a search regarding my topic title. The results showed a discussions thread back in 2010 regarding Chris at Algarvemobility@hotmail.com. I sent Chris an email but it came back as a failed delivery. Does anyone know if Chris or algarvemobility is still around, or know of anyone else who might be able to offer info regarding disabled folk? Obrigado in advance!

I am retired and receive a UK State Pension and live near Faro. I need to take medication for high blood pressure and an eye condition. I submitted an S1 form to a local health centre have now got myself registered into the Portuguese national healthcare system. Before I achieved this I paid consultancy fees to 2 doctors and obtained prescriptions from them. Can I now get the tablets and eyedrops for these prescriptions from the state system at the local health centre or hospital without a lot more fuss and expenditure? Thanks.
