Fine, as far as it goes. However, I am trying to get definitive info re the situation concerning holidaying in the Channel Islands (Jersey, Guernsey, etc). Presumably this would apply for any age, so it is of general application and interest.
As the Channel Islands are OUTSIDE the EU, the EHIC card is irrelevant. So what exactly is the position if I fall ill and need medical treatment while I am in the CI ? I am 70 years old; wife 66.
I understand (?) that the reciprocal medical arrangements between CI and Great Britain ceased in 2009. Elsewhere I read that 'emergency treatment' would still be covered (free) by CI Health Authorities. It begs the question of how far this would go of course. Presumably not as far as repatriation by air ambulance !
Anyone got definitive info on current position on this ? We fly out there next Monday !
