Default Healthcare for Scottish wife?

Hi, is there a UK person on this forum who has moved from the UK to Ireland and has some experience of accessing the doctor, what they had to pay, whether its best to have some private health insurance to top up and also what might be a very rough cost? I know its very difficult to get an estimate as there will be enormous differences with different people and lots of companies to choose from. I am from Dublin and my wife is Scottish.
I can phone anyone by arrangement to save their phone bill. <snip>
I have read tons of very useful articles but nothing beats actually chatting with someone who has gone before and knows what will happen! Thanks, Liam

As a British citizen ordinarily resident in the RoI your wife will have the same access to the Irish healthcare system as you do.
