Does anyone know from personal experience if english residents can donate blood in France?   I see the posters advertising dates for donating blood but havent been in the area on the correct day.  I was told a long time ago that our donations would be refused.    Not sure if this was a termporary thing because of the foot and mouth outbreak -  or even if it is just an urban myth     Carol x

Hi, Can anyone suggest a good, modern Doctor in Sète. Not necessarily an English speaker; although that would be la cerise sur le gateau. Thanks

I will shortly be returning to live in France, having previously done so.  I am quite shocked at a couple of quotes I have received for top-up health insurance. Is there anybody who can recommend a company please. Thanks in advance.

I've had complementary assurance since I started working in France - 2007.    The payments have gone up and up and up and I decided to cancel it when I received the new premium and put the money into a savings account.    I don't go much to the doctor and the only claim I have had over the last 3 years has been from my annual visit to the dentist.    I wrote to the mutelle cancelling the contract and sent it recommende as soon as the renewal came through.    I have just received a letter saying I cannot cancel this for another year because  I didn't send them a letter 2 months before ...but I didn't receive the renewal until the 1st week of December for the new annual contract starting 1st Jan.       I've just had an horrible phone call with the company saying basically 'tough luck'   the law is the law (Loi Chattel).   I have to go another year of cover before I can cancel.    I told him I was going to cancel the prelevement and he said he would come straight back at me with all the law on his side.   He then laughed,.....red rag to a bull - so  I asked him not to laugh at me, he did not apologise and he put the phone down.   Am I up the creek without a paddle or is there anything I can do to get out of this?    The worst thing was that he laughed at me... I don't want any more quotes so insurers please don't contact me with a proposal - I'll take my chances.

Hi and please excuse the three-fold question. Firstly, we recently moved to Pezenas and I'd love any recommendations on a good doctor in Pezenas (French-speaking only is no problem - just looking for a good recommendation!). Ditto for a dentist! In addition, I'm 5 months pregnant and trying to find an indoor pool close by that offers classes for pregnant women. Not having a lot of luck! Does anyone have any recommendations? Thanks so much, my email for private replies is cally.williamson@gmail.com
