Very easy to register - there's loads of 'local' GPs very similar to home & more reasonably priced. Or posher expat ones. Try to stock up on any routine meds before you come. And make sure you have decent medical cover if any pre-existing conditions. Opticians - exactly like UK. But I order contacts online in UK & bring over a few months supply at a time when home for hols. There's loads of very helpful FB expat wives pages if you need more info too. Good luck with the move!
