Does anyone know if we need them for the Channel Islands please?

No-one?

I dont know- i dont think so- but seeing how they are free and just a bit of hassle at the post office, couldnt you just get them anyway?

isn't the channel islands part of the british isle? so i don't think you need it. Not 100* sure though. ask at post office

Pick up the "Health advice for travellers" booklet from the P.O. Under "Reciprocal Agreement Countries" the Channel Islands are listed - this means you are entitled to emergency medical treatment. As I read it you do not need the E111 but would need to produce proof of UK residence. Get the booklet as it lists exactly what is available to you and what you pay charges for.

You just need to provide some form of ID that you are a UK citizen, driving licence etc.

this may help

Thank you so much. I didn't think you did but the woman in the post office confused me.

The E111 forms will be scrapped by the end of this year. With reference to Yoyo's posting this version of the "Health Advice for Travellers" booklet, available as webpages from the links below, is valid only until the end of August 2005, after which the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) will be introduced and an updated version of the booklet will be made available. Form E111s issued after 19 August 2004 will continue to be valid until 31 December 2005.

TBH I'd forget all about the E111 and get a detailed travel insurance policy instead.

It's still worth getting an E111 now though because "Note: the European Health Insurance Card will replace the E111 in 2005. If you tick the appropriate box on the E111 application form you do not need to apply separately for this, as the details that you have provided will be used to issue you with one automatically later in the year, prior to the expiry of your E111" (from Dept of Health )
