Lots of dental work which I am very pleased with

Treated for rabies which was a dreadful ordeal, Pattaya memorial weren’t great

Lump removed at Pattaya memorial near the Crown Jewels and tested for C. Very distressful

Yearly medical at BPH, always looking at add ons

Broken heart, sorted by a tart in Walking street

Tennis elbow, Queen Sirikit, dreadful experience

I have been fairly lucky, but did go to BPH with a bit of an eye infection a few year back.

They have a great eye department and I got prompt attention. As a viral infection there wasn't much to be done apart from steroid drops to reduce the swelling and some other drops to help stop the eye drying out. I had to return 3 weeks later for a follow up and the total cost was around 1000b including the drops.

This looks like a right mess, but the ortho and physical therapists here performed an absolute miracle being able to piece this together and allowing me to continue with somewhat a normal life.

Not only that, but best sponge baths on face of the planet are here in Thai hospitals.....like anywhere in world the quality of health and dental care varies practitioner to practitioner, but the good ones in Thailand are as good as anywhere and the bang for the buck is unrivalled.

a friend of mine is in hospital in Angeles City with double pneumonia and blood poisoning, when I went to visit him at AUF last week was a little surprised to see a Church on the ground floor of the hospital and God talking over the PA system.....

I asked my dentist what she thought of the work I had done over 13 years in Thailand and she said it was excellent.

People who say medical work is poor here are nuts , the first thing a developing country does when people are wealthy is get good health services...

Its the NHS it’s free best in world blah blah merchants

I don't quite understand what you are asking but there were several people who had a similar problem around the same time as me, including my laudry lady. The doctor said it was an airborne virus that was seasonal.

Compared to the UK under the NHS I would say it's pretty good.  Never seen a Paki Doctor in Thailand.

You have to sit the exams in Thai language

Only Dr Oliver I think has ever passed the exam and despite him being a registered Dr. he cant even administer a needle

And correct me if my memory serves me incorrectly, but wasn't it in the fabulous UK NHS system where you picked up the infection?

Like I told you the other night, great to see you looking so good, cuz that day I saw you in the hospital recovering,  it was certainly iffy looking if you were going to come out the other side.
