Doctors, doctors and more doctors
If there's one thing that works extremely efficiently in France it's the healthcare system. Coming from England, where you have to beg your doctor to 'allow' you to see a specialist, it's somewhat unbelievable that you can just pick up the phone and make an appointment with whomever you want here.
Waiting lists are pretty much non existent and if you just feel like having your blood analised for signs of infection just for the hell of it then you can just drop in, give a sample and get your results the next day. I really can't speak highly enough of the system here.
But back to the waiting rooms.
Yes, the reception desk is made from plastic tiles shaped and coloured to look like wood.
And yes, the orange leather chairs highlight what is for all intents and purposes an autumn palette of mixed textures.
Next time I come here I'll wear gold lamé trousers and see if I can get a photo of me for the blog.
