Pretty sure you would. Only people resident in Britain get free medical cover. British Nationals living abroad don't. They still need to produce their EHIC card from their country of residence and the NHS will then bill the insurance company. They've been tightening up on medical tourism for years now.

Agreed in theory. In practice I bet if they hear a British accent they might just not ask. I've never been asked for proof of address while accessing the nhs when I lived in the UK and there is no official ID card.
