Re: Visit to the Neurologist

Saw Neurologist again today and his interim diagnosis is ''This is a strange case''. Poor man wondered why I burst out laughing - not my fault that I don't conform to the list of usual symptoms! Anyway test is set for end of next month, perhaps he's hoping in the meantime I might co-operate but havi...

Re: Petition against Boris's Plan

At last the UK is getting on with the wishes of the people who voted in the referendum to leave the EU. I didn't vote and neither do I have in-depth knowledge of economics or politics to decide if it was the correct decision. What is important to me is that people voted to leave and we have wasted 3...

''It is important to apply for this letter to avoid problems with the tax department trying to claim contributions''. Fr...

Still under investigation following an unexplained incident about 8 weeks ago I was referred to see an ENT doctor and later a Neurologist. This post is about the various systems for patients actually seeing the doctor. In both cases a date and time of appointment were given. €6 Duly paid at Receptio...

Re: Important info re Meu 1 Meu 3

Currently there is no guarantee of reciprocal state health care after 31st October and as we are fortunate to have MEU3 status, should we be no longer covered by the UK for state health care in Cyprus, at least we will still be eligible to GESY healthcare due to our MEU3 status, albeit we would then...

Re: Put that fag out

Worse still is having to make your way through smokers gathered around an entrance to a building - and with the door open, the smoke goes inside too.

Visit to the Neurologist

Just thought I'd let you know that I saw the Neurologist today.

After asking a few questions and tapping my knees and elbows with a miniature hammer, he wants me to have a brain function test (EEG) in Limassol.

No good my brain functioning in Limassol when I live in Paphos!!

Re: A GESY tale ...

I remember reading on FB in May that some patients and a clinic were left in the lurch after one Personal Doctor moved to another area and they were subsequently registered with another PD at the same clinic. However, now the lists are filling up there may not be the choice to sign up with a preferr...

Re: New pub peyia

There was originally a British Legion themed venue in Limnaria Gardens - about 4-5 years ago which proved popular at the time and was in a good location for many to use its facilities. Not just for the RBL but I remember having a lunch and there was a regular group that went there for a few hours ea...

Re: The Kindness of Cypriots

Interestingly on the few occasions when I have been in situations when I needed help (medical attention in a couple of incidents) it was the Cypriots who came and helped while the Expats sat/stood and watched.

Re: New pub peyia

There are other charities on the island that also help people who were in the forces and many smaller groups and individuals offer their support. Large organisations don't suit everyone. Such a shame that it is necessary for veterans to have to depend on charity.
