I am now in Portugal for 6 months in the year and would like to apply for residency.  Portuguese law states that I have to apply after 90 days in the country.   One of the stipulations is that I must provide proof of health care entitlement, the S1 form, from the British authorities. I should state now that I am a pensioner, aged 70.  Upon contacting the relevant authorities in the UK, I am told I can only have an S1 if I leave the country for good!  What do I do to satisfy this requirement of the Portuguese system as I shall continue to spend 6 months of the year in the UK and therefore will not be entitled to the S!!?   Any answers  gratefully received!
