I can't, but I should caution you that there is no equivalent here of the UK national health service. Doctors with offices around the town are private. The only state-provided health services are at the general hospitals and government health centres.

Incidentally, if you are of retirement age you will automatically qualify for the free healthcare that is available and you will need to get a health booklet to do so. That is something else for the to-do list.

Thank you. The to do list gets longer and shorter, then longer, we'll get there. Cheers.

Incidentally, you might want to consider whether you want to take out private health insurance, given the limited nature of the public health system here. The good thing is that private medicine is cheaper here than in the UK.
