Hi Anjelica 

You will need a list of medications from your current doctor an NHIC CARD (VALID )your passport  and if you are pensioner an S1 form 

If you're not pensioner you pay 90% of the cost of medication    if you are pensioner you pay 10% of the cost of medication

Hi anjelica    im not sure about  HRT    ive never had the need for it   lol    maybe a male equivalent  if your plan is to come over at 3 monthly intervals  then maybe discuss with your gp and he/she may prescribe  a 3 monthly presciption   

The Hnic I previously mentioned  is an EHIC  but im not sure if they will exist now that the U.K. have exited the european union BREXIT   

If you still have a good few years until you officially retire   I personally would get yourself established in a permanent address  then apply for residencia after a year  again you need a spanish bank account   €5000 and proof of income going into previous bank accounts 

If I can help you with any other questions or impartial advice I can give you my whatsapp no.

Hope this has been helpful to you 

Bill
