Just to update and close the thread.

Thanks again for advice and kind words.

I got Mum repatriated on Tuesday night in the end, the insurance were a bit slow but came up trumps with a travel plan that took her hospital assessment into consideration, she enjoyed being picked up from the airport by a uniformed chauffeur in an S class.

She is weak but in good spirits, I reminded her that I'm meant to be the reckless one getting into bother overseas not her especially at her age!

E111 only valid I believe, if she was taken to their equivalent of an NHS hospital. If she's in a private one they wouldn't be long about in asking for her insurers details.

Only going by the TV programme that used to be on.

Sure she will be receiving very good care too.

All the best & wishing your mum a speedy recovery.

The facts are a bit sketchy regarding my Mum's hospital status but despite handing over her E111 card they would not discharge her until their bill of EU7,000 had been paid. She was all for paying up to get out of there but I wanted to wait for the insurers to review her medical notes and settle the bill while arranging a medically approved repatriation plan, as it turned out there was only a couple of hours delay.

I was also conscious that had I paid the EU7,000 bill the insurers might not have paid back in full due to the potential that they might have for negotiating the bill downwards. Having said that money is less significant in these situations.
