Just wondered if yanyone can confirm, we have EHIC cards, is that all we need to bring with us for holiday health cover? What do you do if you need to see a doctor urgently, is it just a case of showing the carD?

You should be fine with the EHIC. It will cover you for treatment which could be free (depends on how the doctor) but be prepared to pay up front for your treatment, keep all receipts (including pharmacy receipts for prescriptions) and claim the money back when you return to the UK.

Hope this helps - enjoy your stay here!

Thanks for that, you've set my mind at rest! I hope we don't need to use the card but at least we have them if we need it.
