So my wife went to see a gynecologist who prescribed some meds, went to a different chemist , chemist just asked her name, found her on the...

Re: Doctors overloaded weeks after Gesy launch

The GPs in the UK get @£150 a year for each patient on their books, I doubt if the GPs here get anything remotely near that figure

Re: Cypriot serial killer given seven life sentences

Wonder if this mans 7 life sentences will actually run con currently? If this is so, at a later date, will he able to apply for remission of his sentence because he is sorry for what he did and is a reformed character? For the sake of women and children on this island I hope not. Dee https://cyprus...

That's why those buffets have such small plates. Fancy a showbiz story? I know you do so here goes... My wife once ran a bridal shop in the UK. One of the customers wanted her to attend her party, so she could do any stitching in emergencies. My wife politely declined, as it would mean being away f...

They have always admitted when there was a fault. All good now.
Their service is second to none now, they cant do enough for you when you ring them up, and they will patiently, talk to you step by step until the problem is sorted.

Re: Cyprus has the highest prices in Europe for milk, cheese and eggs

That may be so but the questions is what they regard free-range. It could be that the hens are able to roam freely for only 30 min/day or have no bushes/trees for cover so that they´re too scared to roam around (as they instictlvely want to be able to hide from e. g. birds of prey).

Re: Some meds for chronic diseases not available

Not a good sign that some of the listed medications are not even on the island and that people are having to pay for a dearer alternative. If they´re lucky and there is an alternative. That´s not always the case though. Jeba before you came to live in Cyprus, did you find out if you could get your ...
