Re: Epsom salts

For anyone else interested, there is one especially for use as a detox in a bath as opposed to taking internally. Discovered the chemist sells it. Many thanks for everyone's input.

Re: Dr Maxim GP at the General.

I have been to the general this morning about 11.15. It was nearly empty! Only Tsagarides had people waiting! Dr Tania is on holiday. I was seeing Dr Maria and I didn't wait long, about 15 mins, then a bit longer at the pharmacy, with the usual queue! Dr Maria reminded me to register. Dr Maxim is my...

Re: HAIL AND THUNDER/LIGHTNING KISSONERGA

We were caught out in the open, walking the dogs! We found shelter under a tree! I ran back to the house to collect the car, We were all soaked to the skin and yes, the hailstones do hurt! The thunder scared the dogs, who kept looking for reassurance, which, of course, none was forthcoming! We all g...

Re: Is S1 redundant ?

Don't forget it is not just the 1.7%. There are still presciption charges,, specialist fees, tests to be paid for. However you can choose your own Dr from the list and your hospital of choice.

Re: Cheapest car insurance for over 80s

MOH is over 80, and we were told that new insurers are reluctant to take on over 80's!! We are with Abbeygate and pay €430 for a 1600cc. Nissan Qashqai.

Re: NHS to usher in changes in pharmaceuticals

It appears that the contribution is coming from everyone with the exception of a few people. All on the MOH site. I assume if you wish to have private insurance, that will be up t...

Drink driver?

Someone has posted on FB about an accident in Peyia is regarding a hit and run. The vehicle they believe, could be a 4 x 4 maroon coloured, driven by an older man who wears a bobble hat. I seem to remember a while ago, someone mentioning on here that they had been stationary when they were hit by a ...

Re: Gesy mystery

My understanding is that, as someone else mentioned, EVERYONEwill need to register with the tax office. I believe the 1.7% will be taken from almost everyone, in one form or another. It is akin to U.K. National Insurance, where all contribute, but you can choose to go private also. I would imagine t...

Re: Driving in your “Dotage”

"How fast was the KIA going to overturn a Land rover" How do we know that the Land rover didn't overturn when it hit the KIA? We don't. That is why it is being investigated.

Re: OSYPA are no more!

The Nicosia route was popular. People working , cheaper than petrol! It was also handy for people needing the hospital who needed to go for tests or to visit someone. The free bus, I was told, is only for cancer patients. Handy for Ikea too!
