    I am in receipt of a UK State Pension, but my husband is not yet of pensionable age.

    I have read the following on the NHS Website, and would appreciate advice:

    “If you are in receipt of a UK pension and have registered a valid UK S1 form with the relevant authorities in your country of residence, and your healthcare is paid for by the UK by virtue that S1 form, then you are now entitled to return to England to receive free NHS hospital treatment, just like someone who is ordinarily resident in England”

    My question is, If I register with the Spanish Healthcare system via the S1 form I believe that my husband can “piggyback” on the system. If this is correct, will he ALSO be entitled to return to England to receive free NHS hospital treatment and access to GPs, just like someone who is ordinarily resident in England?

    Thanks
