We have some guests coming to stay and one of them has a nut allergy. Does anyone have the Portuguese equivalent of this or know what to look out for on food packages?

Has anybody had the experience of going to an opticians here to have an eye test and new glasses? How much does it cost - roughly - and can you claim it against your tax?

If several of the Silves bombeiros ambulances are out of action, does this mean that it might be difficult to get transport in an emergency?

Re repeat prescriptions. My wife and I both have several repeat prescriptions. I get them free ( over 60 ) and my wife has a pre-payment certificate. What is the situation in Portugal regarding repeat prescriptions and prescriptions in general? We would also appreciate any information and /or advice regarding healthcare. We both have pre-existing conditions so how would that affect any private medical insurance? What about the Portuguese health service? Health costs and the standard of healthcare are our major concerns regarding moving to Portugal. We don't wish to be worse off financially or in terms of health provision.

My wife is suffering with arthritis and degeneration in many of her joints. We have been considering moving abroad for several years and wondered if any athritis sufferers have moved to the Algarve and have found the warmer, dryer climate beneficial. We have to do something as the condition will only get worse and there is nothing the doctors can do.
