Thanks my friend, and yes I would have died for queen and country, but luckily I didn't have to.

Whenever I came across anyone who wasn't UK resident I handed them the relevant paperwork so they could be billed.

My old man is ex Forces with some residual health effects, and he wouldn't dream of getting free NHS care. But then he's a decent man.

I don't think I mentioned that I was looking to be a health care tourist, I think I was just asking the question.......it's amazing how many people jump to conclusions and judge people before they know the full story! As they say in the military always dwell a pause of 2 marching paces before you say anything. Thanks to all those who had constructive comments about my question. For those who didn't and played devils advocate........well you knowπŸ˜ƒ

I don't think I said that you were. I was answering Yorkiechef's comment about ex forces.

Please don't jump to conclusions.

Anyway why do you want to know?

If your husband has health related issues and receives a war pension because of the injuries or disability, he can get treatment for it at UK taxpayers expense for the rest of his life, irrespective of where he chooses to live or retire. If you need the link, contact me. So irrespective of anyone being a decent man or not, he is entitled to treatment even in Canada with the cost being transferred to UK. Prior approval is required. So, if he is a decent man, to whom was your quip about being decent aimed at, me, drew or anyone being treated that is ENTITLED to be treated? Naysayers and shit chuckers, and we wonder why forums are pits of poison. On second thoughts, don't bother contacting me ....

I don't think a toe rag is the best choice for whitewashing a red herring.

It was a serious question.

Are you suggesting that an English ex-serviceman is entitled to health care benefits paid for by the UK wherever in the world they reside and for any health problem that they may encounter even if unconnected to their time as a soldier?

Such as an in-grown toe nail or Alzheimers?
