Most of you will be aware of the change in the law (April 6th 2015), which now allows UK state pensioners (and their dependants) the right to choose to have free NHS treatment in the UK (as long as you registered your S1 in your EU country of residence). What is not clearly explained is that in order to benefit from this change in the law, you MUST already be registered with a UK GP. So, anyone travelling to the UK is advised to register with a GP in your area of choice (temporary registration lasts for 3 months). Otherwise, if you need treatment, you have to make a trip to the UK just to register with a GP.
Hi everyone, does any of you kind people have a cushioned invalid loo seat that they no longer need? I fell and fractured my pelvis and I'm having difficulty with getting up from the loo! Hubby doesn't mind helping but I'd rather do it myself. I went into Larnaca General on Saturday morning for 4 days and I cannot praise them enough. Every member of staff was cheerful, patient and proffessional. We hear so many things that are negative about the health care system over here that I'd like to just mention this positive experience.
Hi to everyone. I have had a blocked nose now for 2 years living in Cyprus and i've use vicks rub on, otrivine nasal spray, and now i'm using Rhino Hexal spray.

Thank you all. Louis.
Hi all Does anyone know or can anyone recommend a dentist here in Cyprus that is patient enough to deal with a paranoid about dentist patient. I have not visited a dentist for 10 years and am petrified of them. But I really need to do something about my teeth..Help!!!!!!!

Hello, Can anyone recommend an insurance company or companies who can insure an 81 year old relative. It's for immigration purposes for resident permit for a non EU passport holder related and dependant to an EU passport holder. The health insurance required is as follows: "Certificate of Health Insurance for medical care that covers inpatient and outpatient care and transportation of corpse. (Plan A)". So far one insurance company has told me they will only insure up to 75 years of age. Thanks
