We want to join the french healthcare system but seem to be blocked by protocol in the UK.  We need an S1 form from the UK but to get this we need to take our state pension.  It wasn't the plan for us to do this although we are entitled to it.  Has anyone any knowledge here as to why we have to receive our state pension before we are issued with an S1?

After living here for nearly 10 years I had almost given up on finding someone good to cut my hair - which isn't easy to cut!  A friend of mine recommended a new hairdresser in Inguinel and I have to say that after my first visit I was really delighted with the restyle that he did.  He is only a young chap but very sweet and an excellent stylist.  You also get a head massage to die for when having your hair shampooed!  I paid 32 euros for a shampoo, cut and dry (including straighteners) so very reasonableDetails:  L'Instant Coiffure, 3 Bis Rue des Tilleuils, 56240, Inguinel - telephone 0297 878980His name is Benoit

Hello I have been advised I need a Total Hip Replacement, luckily I have Insurance, has anyone had this procedure here ?  Can anyone recommend an English Speaking Surgeon ?  My French is OK but would prefer this for extra reassurance and medical explanations !  I have heard there is an excellent Surgeon in the new Hospital at Pontivy ?  I would also love to hear of people's experiences here and what to expect as I am terrified

Any recommendations for an English speakng Doctor in the Carentoir/La Gacilly (569--) area. Unfortunately Dr Aubert in Carentoir is about to retire and isn't taking on any more patients! Thanks in advance.

Wish to surprise my wife by giving her a pineapple print bikini which she always wanted, but don't have much idea about bikinis. Many times I have seen her visiting dollboxx. Has anyone have an idea about the product?

My daughter is going on a school trip to China and has been prescribed the Hep A vaccination, however every pharmacy I've been to is out of stock of it and can't order it. There seems to be a problem at the labs for it.I've checked online and both the UK and France say it's advised.Has anyone been to a pharmacy that has had this vaccination available, it's called Havrix 1 440 U?The pharmacies suggested contacting the Army or the Hospitals, but I don't want to take supplies from such places, as its not an emergency, but at the same time I want her to be protected.Thanks for reading.

We have just moved to 22 prefecture and need to sign up with a Doctor and Dentist. Closest towns are Fréhel, Matignon, Erquy, Val Andre or even Plancoet. Practitioners who use up to date techniques would be preferable and as my French language skills are not great, some English would be a help - any info would be greatly appreciated.PS I did post this a few days ago but for some reason, only the Title posted with nothing recorded on my Account so, I can't even amend or delete it.

After a visit to an O.R.L. (ear, nose and throat) it has been suggested that I purchase a device to go in my mouth to help stop snoring.  He has suggested a SFA Contour Sleep Pro or ONIRIS.  Has anyone tried these and are they comfortable to wear?
