    Osprey Saint,
    I live in Spain.I lived and worked in England until I was 65 years old.I get NO Benefits from the U.K only my basic State pension.I do not return to the U.K. for any medical treatment.I get free medical here as I am an E.U. pensioner paying 10% towards my prescriptions.I am not entitled to any benefits from the Spanish system,which by the way I fully agree with,maybe the U.K could follow suit.You are quite correct,I know plenty of ex pats who return to the U.K. for medicals etc.claim Housing Benefit,Child Allowance,Care Allowance etc,etc,etc.Who is to blame? The G.P.s for one who know their patients live abroad but turn a blind eye to the fact.I know people who receive six months of Prescriptions ,sent by their families,why do the G.P.s do this?I know people with N.H.S dentists in the U.K. who actually ring up from Spain to book an appointment.Why do the Dentists allow this.I will tell you why,the Country is corrupt from top to bottom,that is why.Do not just blame immigration,look closer to home.
    If you have chosen to live in Spain you should NOT be getting a state pension from the UK. End of.
    Why not, this person has worked all his life in the UK and paid into the Pension pot, how does moving abroad make any difference?"
