Whether you're the only person to do it or not doesn't make it right.
As long as Im paying NI and visit within 6 months im still resident here. I have checked.

Actually, dont need to be working at all and I wouldnt have to come back. It only stops being free and available when I havent lived here for more than 5 years

Actually, it has nothing to do with you paying NI nor visiting.

Provided you are working outside the UK for a period of less than 5 years and you can prove that you have been ordinarily resident for a period of at least 10 years prior to that, you can obtain NHS services. You are required to show proof of these though. If you have not been ordinarily resident for 10 years, you lose your rights to free NHS services after 3 months.

Additionally, if you have a Medical Exemption Certificate (diabetes is one of the conditions that allows you to apply) you would not pay any prescription charges under the NHS.

You are a star typing all that out, but the OP doesn't come under the NHS Siouxie - see above. As you're now a mod, 30 seconds of looking will tell you where she is and is from.

What's this all about? My mate is a UK taxpayer, only away on a working holiday and entitled to use the NHS. The UK has plenty of issues and the NHS too generous in many ways but free medication for lifelong conditions is something we do in my opinion have right
