I read your article but need advice on the following.......
My wife and I after a lot of messing about managed to obtain our temporary SIP cards and managed to see a doctor.
Within 2weeks of getting the temporary sip cards my wife received her permanent one.
I used my temp sip card until the end of February at which time the pharmacist told me my sip had expired.
Can anyone advise me what I should do? The medical centre Don't seem to be interested.
Many thanks,
