It is up to you to choose your local GP/ pediatrician. Only Tetanos, diphteria and polio immunisation are mandatory in France. Usually doctors will follow with whatever has been already administrated to your child, pertussis, tuberculosis, measles etc...Hello,
Can you tell me how we ensure that he continues all the regular check-ups and vaccinations in France that he has started in the UK? Is it just a case of taking his red book with me and registering with a local GP?
With one kid, you should benefit a credit on your income tax. I can't remember the amount, my husband told me 5 years ago and I forgot since.Is there a French equivalent of child benefit/family tax credits? If so, would we be eligible for it? My son has dual French/British nationality and my husband is French and will be working as a physiotherapist.
Check with your local PMI PMI 07 - Tous les centres de l'Ardèche there is usually a weekly parent / baby playgroup.Also, are there the equivalent of playgroups/mother and baby groups and if so, how do I find out about the ones in the local area? I'm guessing that there are... As we're moving to Ardeche, I'm a bit concerned that I will be a bit isolated so want to join some of the local groups if they exist...
Good luck with everything
