Hi Does anyone know if French Opticians can accept a UK prescription? I Know it sounds odd but i had my eyes tested on my last visit to the Uk as i was worried about the French test. Thanks for any info. Anyone also know of an English speaking optician in Burgundy? ( Pref South)

Can someone tell me how much we should expect to be repaid after a visit to the doctor.(23€) We are with CPAM and have top up insurance. Seems to have gone down to 15€ !!! I'm sure we used to get a lot more than this. Thanks.

Is there any way how to check whose included on a Carte Vitale? My wife used to be on mine, but the doctor said she isn't anymore and needs her own.

Hi again, Does the CPAM pay anything towards your child going to an Orthophoniste ( speech assistance!!) and is there a specific procedure to go through or can I just make an appointment myself? Has anyone elses child been to one as it was recommended by our child's teacher to help with French pronounciation. Thankyou in advance.

Hi just read in a Uk magazine that Saflower could be a good herbal supplement for Osteoperosis conditions. Does anyone know what this could be in French at the many Herbal Chemists in Burgundy? Thanks for any help!

Hi, just to let people know there is an English speaking optician based in Chagny now. Please PM me if you would lkie the contact details. Apparently he is licensed to check your eyes against your current prescription and do new ones if your prescription hasn't changed, otherwise he will direct you to the opthalmologist for a full examination.

Hi I have been having a lot of issues with a 10 year old injury to my right knee. Have spent the last few weeks trying to walk with crutches but it looks like no end to the wait for things to improve. At age 65, thought i may be too old for a new knee, but will ask if anyone has had a knee replacement in Burgundy, what is your opinion of the care and support, did you feel your medical doctor was ok, and i guess most importantly are you happy you did it and would you do it again ? Thanks for any advice.

Being an independent business, our health cotisations go to RSI.On the detail sheets received from RSI following doctors and pharmacy fees charged, reimbursed etc. Anybody know what " Participation Forfait récupérée" refers to? Seems to be a willy nilly reduction made in what we are repaid, have examined the RAMGAMEX website and can find no explanation. Thanks in anticipation

I drove home from Chalon last Thursday through the fields of colza (rape in English) and the smell was overpowering. By the time I got home I was sneezing, coughing, feverish etc. I have never before had such a severe reaction to pollens etc. With it being Easter I had four days of trying home remedies, hot water, towel over head with tea tree in the vapour, paracetamol, honey and lemon drink etc. The doc was open yesterday so I got some anti-histamines so a bit better today, thank goodness. Is anyone else suffering? Is it unusually high in pollens this year with the early hot weather? Meteo pollen count was Moyen!!
