Feel trapped - plans to spend last years in Costa - what alternatives have you guys come up with in view of the British lunacy -re getting insurance - I have health issues  -  was wondering if I bought a property or rented - how would get health cover ???? I could adapt my plans to just staying over in Spain for 3-4 months at a time - and fly back inbetween - but what happens if one gets ill - like heart attack or stroke - do the Spanish just leave you to die if you don’t have a Spanish Passport ???

You will need an S1 form from UK. You then need to take that, along with tenancy agreement/title deeds to your local town hall and request a Padron. This will allow you to register with a doctor of your choice. You will need to get your skates on though. Go

It's not possible to say what is going to happen, nobody knows. However, you will certainly not be left to die if you need urgent medical care. The Spanish are kind, compassionate people, and that really would be against everything they stand for. If we get a reasonable deal, having an S1 is all you'll need, and it's easy to register with local GP equivalent.
