Default Pension and financial emigration from South Africa to the UK

Good morning, my name is Stephen Laverack I'm 45 and have lived in Johannesburg for 23 years. I recently became a widower (15 months ago) which has made me rethink my future. I have no children but my two elderly parents (both British citizens who have lived here for 26 years) live with me plus three cats. As I am rethinking my future I'm really on here to explore the viability of moving back to England at my age after so many years away, in a Brexit environment. I work as a psychologist and have professional registrations in South Africa (HPCSA) and the UK with the HCPC so finding a job does not seem to be an issue for me in the UK.

I have not paid in the National Insurance since 1993 and although eligible (according to the Gateway) to a small pension to pay in to get a full pension at retirement seems daunting. I'm also worried about doing a full financial emigration to the UK as I would lose value on my investments due to SA's exchange rate and would like to hear how others have managed to deal with this. Thanks
