Our town qualifies for two doctors. One has retired without replacement. We understand that:  after three months without a replacement, the post is eligible for a grant of 50,000 euros to the new incumbent. Is this true?  If so, is there a time committment (e.g. grant given and after say a month, the person leaves). How is a potential applicant evalued and by whom?  (e.g. medical board, qualifications, experience). Is there any web-site that provides detailed information on the procedures?

Hi, I've tried reading the various threads and online information but can't find anything that matches my criteria so any help would be appreciated.I am currently living in the Dordogne, we're only trying it out at the moment with my family. I work in IT for a company in the UK and hence pay my taxes in the UK. Company tax people have told HMRC it's temporary at the moment and they've agreed I continue to pay tax in UK until we decide where we're going to reside. Kids are at school, we're renting and we're going to give it until June (9 months in France) and then decide whether to stay or leave. It's now Jan and it's only now popped into my head about health cover. I saw the doctor last night, just for a sport certificate, but he mentioned I should sort out insurance or get a carte vitale. Now I won't be able to get the carte vitale as I pay my tax in the UK. I have EHIC cards. Is this sufficient, or should I also have some sort of health cover while I am here? How long will EHIC cover us? What will the insurance cover that EHIC won't?Any comments appreciated. Thanks

I realise that the Doctor's fee has risen to €25,00 but the refunds seem to vary wildly.  Went to Doctor on 3/7 and recived €16,50, and on 27/9 and received €14,50.  Also my daughter went and she was refunded €10,50!We all have CV's so does anyone have an explanation before I have to spend a couple of days on the phone. Also asked Docter but he said he thought all refunds were still 70%!Many thanksE.

Desperately looking for an emergency dentist.  Unfortunately I have not had a lot of luck with dentists since living in France and have an appointment booked with what will be my third dentist on 13th October.  I have had to wait over 2 months for this upcoming appointment as they are so booked up.  The problem is that I am not now sure I can wait that long with the pain I am now experiencing.  I am currently popping painkillers like Smarties which is not recommended with other meds I am taking.  Does anyone know of a dentist in the area (47800 La Sauvetat du Dropt) who might be able to help in some way before my upcoming appointment in 11 days time?  I understand that medical recommendations can not appear on a public forum but would ask that any info be sent to me privately via my email: iangrahamimages@gmail.com   Many thanks in advance.
