Thank you Kefalas for informing us all. If that is the case, then the news had not reached me, nor was it mentioned here in the forum previously.

It is therefore sad to know that someone has succumbed.

I echo your thoughts and I am glad you updated us.
  

Treat fairly, those who treat you fairly. To shout is a sign of weakness. Confucious may have said: "Don't be easily hurt or offended. Take a deep breath, count to 10. Log off and make a cup of tea.

I regret to say it but I'm fairly sure that this is the Pete whose wife passed away shortly after Christmas.

Commiserations, Pete.

Hello petetocrete...

I am wondering one year on have you managed to find a solution? Did Kefalas's suggestion pay off for you?

Everyone with asthma that I've spoken to has found that it's much better here but that tree pollen is still a problem. My advice is to live as far from trees as possible and as close to Vamos health centre and Dr. Elizabeth as possible (for emergency treatment).

As for ongoing prescription costs I guess the answer is to cheat. Register a relative's address in the UK as your own and get that relative to collect prescriptions to post out to you here. You are still paying taxes in the UK but living an enforced holiday here so there's nothing morally wrong with doing that. AFAIK the only check a pharmacy makes is that the address given by the collection agent is the one on their computer.

You'd probably have to make an arrangement with the doctor for repeat prescriptions and your wife would probably have to see him every couple of years for a check up.

We have lived here mostly from 2006, as Asthma research consultant advised us to leave the UK, as UK bad for asthma and wifes quality and life expectancy would be seriously affected if she stayed in the UK.

Tried France from 1999 to 2004 for 1 month at a time, BUT had asthma attack ever week ? crops maybe ?

Came to Crete for the 1st time in June 2003 and she was much better, so she tried several times and different seasons etc. and still much better !!! So moved in March 2006 and found rental in Kokino Horio, and have moved rental now 6 times in the 9 years and we are 71 and 64.

So ? is whats the best way to get free/cheap doctors etc. here, when you have been advised by the professions (Dr's) not to leave the UK system (because of wife's many health problems) and we are still paying taxes in the UK etc. Tongue
