:confused:Hello,

We are hoping to move next year to France myself 58yrs my wife 48yrs and our granddaughter who will be 4 next birthday. Where do we go to sort out a French Doctor and transfer of medications etc we already have ?
Just go to your local doctor with copies of your medications and prescription and they will be able to renew them for you. I had no trouble with this when we moved here last year. Get the doctor and pharmacist to provide the brown forms (feuilles des soin) which you will need for reimbursement when you get your Carte Vitale. You will have to pay up front for the doctor and pharmacy.

There's a big thread on here about how the system works but from personal experience I can tell you its a really good system and the standard of care is excellent.

Cheers
