Re: Cyta free upgrades

We were due to be upgraded from 10mbs to 20mbs under the upgrade scheme. But we have not been upgraded - so we contacted CYTA who got their engineers to check our line. However after repeatedly chasing them we have been informed that our line will not support the higher speed as we live in Ineia vil...

Re: Where IS the most expensive Carlsberg in Paphos?

Hi Glowred - You mentioned being charged 3.90 for a small beer in Argaka. Don't know if it was the same place we stopped at last week but as it was lunchtime we asked for 2 cans of soft drinks - only to be told we only sell it from the post - so we both had a large soft drink ( don't know exactly ho...

Re: GESY - Not happy with Medication situation

Trev & Bromerzz Thanks for the comments about the maximum charge per annum - however as I understand it I have been charged an optional supplement on some medications (i.e where you as the patient opts for the branded drug instead of the generic drug). and this charge is not included in the capped a...

GESY - Not happy with Medication situation

We went to see our nominated GP this morning to get my repeat prescription for items which I have regularly picked up from the General. The GP was unable to prescribe my Diabetic Test Strips and Lancets - as they are not on the GESY medication List. Next went to the Pharmacy only to find that the 10...

Re: Dog law up for public consultation, citizens asked to submit suggestions

Very little chance of success unless they change their enforcement regime (or lack of). I know several smaller villages where the local council currently does not collect any dog licence fees - for fear of upsetting the locals most of whom own dogs.

Re: Go Outdoors - NOT RECOMMENDED

Thanks Aquila for the advice - as I am not that up to date with modern technology I do not do Twitter. However I got my son in the UK to contact them. The outcome is that they could not dispatch to us in Cyprus as our address did not come up on their database - consequently our order has been cancel...

Re: Medical for Driving Licence Renewal

Thanks everyone for the replies. Looks like we will have to bite the bullet and go to one of the private medical centres.
Would have liked to think that there was a back-up in the event of sickness or holiday at the General - but hey-ho - we are the ones that live in Cyprus out of choice.
