      I renewed my EHIC by phoning UK.It was straightforward as there were no changes.But I wondered why my siblings,resident in UK,can do so on-line yet we ex-pats need to make an international phone call.Can you imagine someone,elderly,living in perhaps Czech Republic or even Malta with very (to English ears) foreign sounding addresses,having to recite a change of address!Even when I go from Spain to my bank in Gibraltar,where you imagine the English employees would have some idea,I have to spell out my address.So I e-mailed Mr.Jeremy Hunt to ask why there was a difference in giving the same details.Back came a curt reply to say that Mr.Hunt only answers enquiries from his own constituents.Not too many of them in my neck of the woods.

      I quite agree with you monalott - may I suggest you send an email to the conservative party as Mr hunt cannot be made to answer questions relevant to his job!

      I might just do that Pennyd,& thanks for your suggestion.I have found though,no matter who you write to,you get back a vague reply.In fact,when the referendum was on going,I asked the anti-Eu group that Mr.Nigel Lawson was leading in England,if,as his son said,he had only a home in France,was he,like myself in Spain,a fiscal resident,integrated & being legally able to access the facilities of his adopted country or did he flit back & forth to UK retaining his residency there,which would allow him to vote & head this group.I wondered if this was the case & he was burgled at his French home,if he would ask the French police to attend despite not paying,as a non-resident in France,for this service.Back came a reply to state that"someone would contact me soon".Months later,I sit here wondering "how soon" this might be!

      I'd send the same email again to Mr Lawson with a subject title "Second time sending as no reply received first time!" - make them work for their money!! lol
