Our friend has been advised by their doctor to seek help from a psychiatrist.  The person concerned does not have a good grasp of French so needs to see one who can speak some English.  Does anyone know of any possible contacts in the region?  The doctor did give the names of two practitioners near Eymet and Bergerac but they don't speak any English.

Hello, My name is Belle, and I am a healthcare professional/personal trainer/nutritionist.Throughout the year I split my time living between Manchester in the UK, and Domme, in the Dordogne.From my time exploring the area around Domme, I haven't noticed many gyms and I just wondered what people's opinions were on health and fitness within the region. For instance, do you feel that you are as fit and healthy as you'd like to be? Do you know of ways/services that could help you improve/sustain your health and wellbeing... and I suppose ultimately, is that a service you'd be interested in using if it was accessible to you, be it locally or online?Thanks in advance for any input, Belle

Hi, I am not resident in France but live here half of the year. Finding it impossible to get knee replacement surgery in the UK within any reasonable timescale, I am going to try to have it done here in the Dordogne and reclaim the cost from the NHS. Has anyone done this? If you have experience of having knee replacement surgery in the Dordogne, preferably near to Perigueux, and can recommend a hospital or a surgeon I would be grateful if you could pm me with information. Thank you.

Looking for information with regard of having dialysis whilst staying near Villeneuve sur Lot. Currently have dialysis three mornings a week and I believe that if it is a 'state run hospital'  the UK will cover the cost.
