Thanks Pam - I thought that I had totally lost the plot.

Re the machine to check INR, this will very soon be redundant as there is a drug waiting for approval which will mean that INR checks will not be necessary. It is to be available here in 2 months the doctor estimates. Forget the name and no time this am to look it up, it is not a new drug it has been used for years in orthopaedic operations to avoid blood clots.

I have regular INR tests, which, before I had IKA cover cost 4.05 euros in the local hospital. Results in 2 hours and see the pathalogos immediately, or maybe with a short wait to discuss the action required.
I would suggest that when you arrive make a hospital appointment with pathology who will write a note to authorise the test. Speak to a Pharmacist, they are generally excellent here and can advise on the best doctors to see.
Hope this helps.

I am probably being a little thick or as I have discovered a hole in my sock that I keep my marbles in, maybe I have lost too many.

I have registered twice to view the Crete Gazette but cannot figure out how to view it - please help.
