Does anyone know which hospital in Granada specialises in heart surgery as my friend is going to have a triple bypass operation and will be sent to public hospital in Granada but we don't know which one. My wife is going to fly over to be with his wife as she is a bit distraught as she speaks no Spa...

Re: Satellite alignment

Hi Auntflo, Glad we could be of some help. It's a nightmare trying to sort it out and I have decided we need a new dish as well but apparently a 1.2 mtr dish costs about €300 and with extreme heat , cold and high winds - how do we know the new one is not going to get battered out of shape as well. I...

Re: scanner

I have to agree with Enrique - I was amazed at the quality of the HP printer scanner that came free with my sister-in-law's laptop. It scans to pdf and the menu system is very simple. When I looked it up it only costs £27 there's even a wireless one for a few poinds more. http://www.argos.co.uk/stat...

Re: Travel Insurance again

I suppose that is an option but they are keeping him in hospital so far, and they must think it is pretty bad or they would release him. Probably the best result would be to have the operation in Spain as another neighbour of ours who was actually insured and offerred a triple bypass in Tenerife dec...

Re: Premier Movers

I have used Jimbothescot on 3 occasions and have to say that I was extremely pleased with the very personal and efficient door to door service. Nothing broken, nothing lost and great communication at every time. There might well be some who are cheaper but I have heard too many horror stories so use...

Re: Travel Insurance again

I am very interested in this thread as my friends are visiting Spain for a 6 week stay and they are both pensioners but one of them had angina and when it was told to the insurance company (they have an annual policy) they asked how long ago was the last attack. The answer was 15 years so they said ...

Re: Income tax rates in Spain

Sorry I couldn't reply earlier as my account was frozen because I changed my email address - the old one was defunct. Sid, you are very helpful and obviously knowledgeable. I have found other info that suggests the same , that even compulsory purchased annuities which are taxed as income in UK, are ...

Re: Income tax rates in Spain

Yes there are allowances which increase at 65 and 75. The base allowance is 5151 but there is another based on a sliding scale which is 4080 – 2652 (sliding scale on incomes from 9180 – 13260) The basic rate of tax is 24% on incomes (after allowances) of up to 17707. These are the rates for last ye...
