Brit expats fear they could DIE abroad with Brexit split
While the political jostling continues between Westminster and Brussels, Brits living in Spain are scared stiff about how they will live from day to day after Brexit finally happens.
There are officially around 300,000 British citizens in Spain but it has been claimed that this could be three times higher with many not registered.
It estimated that there are around 70,000 pensioners and they along with those who have suffered ill-health that are most worried about the chaos.
It has been reported that this actually saves the NHS about £450 million a year with a parliamentary select committee reportedly told in 2017, that Spain charges an average of £2,300 per pensioner compared to £4,500 by the NHS.
Campaign group ‘Bremain in Spain’ feel the worries of expats are being ignored.
“For those with chronic illnesses, removal of their healthcare would be huge – someone with cancer, for example, would need many expensive drugs and would not qualify for private insurance,” said chairwoman Sue Wilson.
