Changing of doctor

I've moved house and would like to change to a nearby doctor. Can anyone tell me what the procedure is please? Do I just present myself at the new surgery and ask to be taken on or is it more complicated?

Re: Correos Redirection

The lady at our local post office told us we need to go to a main post office to arrange redirection. I'll be very interested if anyone has an easier way.

Re: Cheap acoustic guitar

If you are on FaceBook you could try putting an ad on the Torre del Mar and Nerja buy swap sell group pages. Someone may have one they no longer want.

So sorry. I can't imagine how devastated you must feel! Your neighbour deserves to be stung up. What a horrendous situation!

Re: IBI percentage of Valor Catastral

Just to let you know that miracles do happen. Our fiscal value has been reduced! If anyone is in the same position it is worth appealing. We needed an up to date valuation of the property and a signed sales contract. The value hasn't come down quite as far as we would have liked but is is a vast imp...

Re: You probably all know this...

It's up to you how much personal info you put on, so if you are worried, just join under a different name. That way you will only be identifiable to people you choose.

I seem to have had a senior moment and posted this thread twice. Hopefully someone will remove one of them.

You probably all know this...

I've only recently found the "Buy, Swap & Sell" groups on FaceBook and I'm now addicted to them. If anyone is looking for a bargain or needs to sell something these are the places to do it. Got to be quick though, the best bargains are snapped up straight away. Just do a search for a place name, suc...

It's a company. Broadband 4 Spain. They provide satellite internet.

We use them and have found them to be very good.

Thanks. I'll suggest BB4S. I doubt they'll be wanting to traipse off to bars every time they want to use it.

Occasional internet access

My neighbours (Both in their 80's) were delighted to receive ipads for Christmas.Their grandchildren all clubbed together to buy them so that they could keep in touch with each other. They are finding it all very exciting and have joined Face Book and are making use of the numerous apps. All is well...

Re: Where is David Searle?

I think he probably felt a bit redundant on here with El Cid and Beachcomber being so quick off the mark.

I've had some great advice here, on the forum and by pm. :D

As far as I know anyone can type in EVENT20 and get the discount, not just folk on their mailing list. T...

Re: Duraglit

Silver Dip is wonderful. It cleans gold just as well too. Just don't dip anything with opals-they are too porous.
