My husband (aged 27) my daughter (aged 2) and I (aged 27) are thinking about coming to lanzarote to long term rent in the short term before deciding where we want to put down proper roots either lanzarote or UK. My husband works offshore in the North Sea so will be in UK waters for over half the year where as my daughter and I will remain in lanzarote full time. I will not be working. How does the healthcare system work and what options do we have? Any help will be greatly received. Thank you in advance

European rules apply. If you have sufficient years of national insurance payments, DWP will fund up to 2.5 years of health care in the Spanish NHS for all of you. Google DWP's help line. If one of you gets a proper work contract where you pay social security here, you are all covered for the Spanish NHS otherwise it is private insurance. The actual facilities and care here are as good as in UK.
