Please can anyone let me know how easy/difficult it is to obtain health care in France, whether for minor ailment with a local GP or, heaven forbid, in an emergency. I would like to know any procedures that have to be followed in preparation for our move as my 6 year old has a habit of breaking things - like limbs.
I read the following in Connexion and, as they say, forewarned is forearmed.
"Entry into the healthcare system stinks. Even if you are legitimately entitled to it, you have to fight tooth and nail to get it and when you have children involved, it's just not fair." (from the letters page in The Connexion).
