The GP prescribed a change of medication for me but it turned out to be unavailable so the ex stand-in receptionist ph...

Re: Kalyves Post Office

Courier services seem to be very efficiently currently - well, DHL is. I ordered a couple of items from Amazon UK on 9th April, despatched by Amazon on 14th with an estimated deliver of 21st April. The package arrived at the front door mid afternoon today (16th) via Wroclaw (where it arrived at 16:5...

Re: EOPYY Prescriptions

A price variation is not surprising. These are private doctors so they can charge whatever they decide to charge. You are paying the doctor for carrying out the administrative task of filling in the prescription just as you would pay for an examination or some treatment. You are not paying EOPYY fo...

Re: EOPYY Prescriptions

Yes, Warwick but "3sheets of paper and 6 items on said paper" could mean either two or six items on each of the three sheets of 'said paper'. Either way there's a discrepancy in cost. I pay €15 for three prescription (three items on each) and starfish's husband pays €20 - €1.66 (near enoug...

Greengibble now have two outlets, the original in Litsarda and a more recent one in Kalyves. I've been to the former once but not the latter. They clearly didn't design the aisle spacing for the man with the "slightly" fuller figure............ I haven't been to either but 'Er Indoors has...
