Re: More Questions from the newbies

I always use Algofren 600 mg, 2 euros for 20 tablets.(Generic name for Ibuprofen )

Relieves my arthritis pain and also the odd headache after a few too many G & T`s.

Works for me.

A visit to the Bank of Greece (Not the National) was fruitless,` sorry we don`t hold sterling and we cannot get any`. very modern bank but no customers. I was a...

Re: Crete driving is appalling !

Warwick, The roads I mentioned are the main roads out of Athens, Northbound towards the Airport, not the Toll roads, Mesogeion in particular is very dangerous. Bus lane (but if the sign does not mention any specific Greek name they use it) Center lane for others and the outside lane for the idiots, ...

Re: Hotel near University Hospital Iraklion

Point taken Warwick, My appointment is the evening of 2 November, with a few days extra in the hospital. (Ok it is at the end of the season but I was given a three month waiting list for the surgeon !!!) I am sure many all year round hotels would have a restaurant but if not a short taxi ride would ...

Re: Hotel near University Hospital Iraklion

Clio, I used the guest house at the hospital (on my own) about 10 years ago when my late wife was having treatment for her cancer. It was a basic room for the most but I did had direct contact with her ward during the night which was invaluable. (Private parking was also a bonus) altohb, Looks a ver...

Hotel near University Hospital Iraklion

I need to find a good hotel for a few days close to the above hospital in the near future.

Not B & B or room only but a quality hotel.

Any recommendations from those at the other end of the island (Lol)

If Istronian had explained the reason so perfectly as you then we would not have had to enter into this discussion.

Re: I need your pearls please ...

In Greece you can ride a 125 cc bike on a car licence quote Istronian.

Is this on a Greek licence or UK ?

Could you point to the relevant legislation please?

I can only ride a 49 cc moped on my uk drivers licence.

Re: How do you report a doctor?

To Tweet Tweet, Yes, I forgot to mention the B12 fix I take every day, not available with IKA discount but 10 Euro a month seems reasonable. My wife had a thyroidectomy a few years ago so we are in touch with her doctor and surgeon to see what can be done at a later date. Thanks for your input. Allan
