Things you NEED to know before returning home to the West Indies

  1. Beware that if you leave the UK permanently to live overseas, you may no longer be eligible for NHS care.
  2. If you need medical assistance, you need an address in the UK and the be registered with a GP (preferably your old one).
  3. Be aware that University of the West Indies Hospital is not cheap, so unless you have substantial savings, be prepared!
  4. Save your pension for a rainy day.
  5. You do not want to be isolated. Plan in advance where you will live. Is it near the airport/hospital/doctor?
  6. Will you need transport?
