  1. Hiya I have an old basic Garmin sat nav which i use in the UK. Was thinking of my company giving me a sav nav for oz for my leaving gift!! Which ones do you recommend? or is it better to get it out there? Help! Thanks!
  2. Hi John, Hope all is well :smile: Just a quick question please. Is the GPS system an online application where I can setup the bank accounts etc and do transfers online at my leisure from home? If so, how can I get access to the GPS system? I am already a moneycorp member. Cheers B!K3R
  3. Hi, I have been using the Global Payment System (GPS) which is Moneycorp's online system to transfer my money. It is OK to use but is not as simple as I thought it could be. It is handy and quick'ish to move your money though. However, my major concern is that the exchange rate offered always seems to be about the 'bank rate' advertised on PIO home page, not the Moneycorp rate. Has anyone else noticed this or am I the only one daft enough to trust a computer? If Moneycorp's rates really aren't correct on the PIO home page (there is a caveat in the smalls) then this is misleading at the best. I have PM'd John from Moneycorp wrt this but no reply as yet. Can anyone shine some light on the differences in exchange rate between GPS and the POI home page? Does anyone actually get the rate advertised? I'm a skinflint and every cent counts so any advise on getting a better deal is appreciated.:jimlad:

    Bl**dy GPs!!!!! long rant!

    :arghh: We had our visa meds on the 20th April and when there hubby was told he had some sugar in his urine. The Dr asked him to book in for a repeat test at our GP surgery. While at the meds hubby called the GP surgery, told them exactly what was needed and what for and that we needed the results to fax back for the Visa meds and booked an appt with the nurse. He turns up to the appt, not only has urine done but also fasting bloods. He was called this week to say all have come back as normal, no problems and he was invited to attend an appt to collect the results in paper. Hubby goes to the surgey for the appt yesterday and was told that he could not have the results in paper. The GP has refused!! Hubby spoke again to the receptionist today and was told he does not have the right to access his records and since the test was done for a private reason then they can refuse to allow him to have the paper result. Even after hubby offered to pay for them. I called the PCT and was told that he does have a right via the freedom of informations act and try and speak to the practice manager. I also called the complaints dept to look at ways of resolving this without having to put a complaint in and she said the same thing. I called the practice manager and was told by the receptionist he was refusing to talk to me!!!!! In the end we've had to go back to the visa meds people and book for hubby to go and do the test there. 1hour travel each way plus the £££'s. Tsk...... Bloody joke! So, dont trust your own GP to help out with any additional visa health investigations. Make sure its been agreed in writing that you can have the results after tests have been done. Im so frustrated i feel a letter of complaint coming on!

    Can I get the tax back?

    I've just got a SNOOPER SAPPHIRE S270 on line. I heard that tax may be turned back when shopping online sometime. So I just wondering if I can get my tax back. And please tell me how if it would be possible. Thanks a lot!

    GPs in Oz.

    Hi, My wife, little 2 year old boy, and I are thinking of taking the plunge and heading back to Melbourne. We worked there for 12 months in 2005/6 in A&E. We've recently qualified as General Practitioners. I'm not quite sure of the job prospects/hours/etc as a GP in Oz. I've spoken to a recruitment agency who seem quite positive, but I always take what they say with a pinch of salt! Are there any fellow GPs out there who can give me some advise. My wife is a bit reluctant/nervous about moving away from her family - again!? So I could do with some help! Thanks. Steve. PS great forum site! Some real characters out there. Maybe even catch up with a few of you Melbournites if we make it.
