For those who don't know - the entire EU (including the UK) has a reciprocal health care agreement. If I fall sick in France, I can be treated, just as the French guy who falls sick in the UK can. It normally balances out, except in Spain. Seems like half of Europe retires there so you can imagine the strain on their health service.
