HiI wonder if anyone can recommend a good English speaking doctor and dentist in the Dinan area? We have been here permanently for a few months already and trying to sort this side of things out.Please PM me if you have any info, in accordance with French regulations. Thanks in advance,Joanne
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

We are off to Spain shortly and have been advised that we need a carte european, re our health cover, we have a complementaire and a tiers paient, but have been told that in the event of a problem we would have to pay and then be reimbursed, anyone any experience of this?
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.
