Default Will it be easier for me?

I've been living overseas for a number of years, and I have just started to receive a British national government pension. I am thinking of returning to England. Does having the pension, and of course a national insurance number, make it easier to sort things out if I go back. For example, registering with a local GP; visiting a hospital, getting a pensioner's bus pass etc.

I don't think it will make any easier or more difficult. I think all the things you describe are relatively straightforward to sort out.

Once you are back for good all those things are available automatically. for bus pass you need proof of age, and proof of residence, i.e. a utility bill, of rental contract, GP may need proof of residence in the same way. GP surgery will find your NHS number for you as they all changed about 6 or 7 years ago. You don't need pension for any of these as the bus pass is simply age related.
