Re: Gesy doctor on holiday

Yes our doctor is on a two week holiday and did not mention any provisions to have another GP take over his patients, if you really need to see a GP then pay the fee, usually about €35's, your well being is worth that cost I think.

Re: Form for renewing Driving Licence

Two years ago when 70 I had to have a medical and eye test at my then local GP, she filled in the form and stamped it all clear, then we had to go to the Citizens advice centre and they made up our new driving licence and took a mug shot, sorry forget how the cost went down but it is about €30's for...

Re: Smoking in Ambulance

Smoking is a bad habit especially in a fuel filling station, that Ambulance as I live in Tremithousa maybe the one we called for as a neighbour was very ill, it took 1 1/2 hours to get here..(just maybe the same?)

Re: Buying a used car? be carefull.

I have purchased several motors from a local dealer, personally never had any problems, best I feel if you sell on go to a Notary who deals with transfers, be careful as always buying privately anywhere in the world, my dealer does all the paper work and even give you several years guarantee, PM me ...

Re: Work on our villa.

Alan was a good man, I knew him for many years and was a founder moderator on CL, life is cruel at times.

Re: Mains water off in Trimithousa

Water is still off at 6am today, I think the reason for the warning about disconnection being late was due to the days off for mourning?.

Back on slowly and cloudy at 10am..

Re: General Hospital

If all the Cypriots returned to Cyprus from the UK then there would not be room enough here for us all here, I agree it is very rude to disrespect the locals but the same goes for disrespecting us expats. All most of us ask is some understanding of this new medical system as at the moment is in some...
