Default EHIC to S1

I am sure it is covered elsewhere, but how do I change my EHIC to an S1 in order to facilitate paperwork for residencia ?? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Call DWP. I think they will send an S1 without any formalities

I think this is still the number.

The S1 healthcare forms are only available for people who are drawing the UK old age pension. If you fall into that category you can send for the forms but they will only post to a Spanish address.

Full details here. Just scroll down to the section on how to obtain an S1 form and what to do when you get it.

The EHIC and S1 are competely different and separate things and you do not exchange one for the other.

As it would seem that you are entitled to S1's then providing you get your residence in before Dec 31st. then you will keep your EHICs and be able to use them if visiting other EU countries just as you do or can now.

Mata. The advice from the uk gov is that S1 cover will continue for those in the system before the end of the transition period but not for new registrations. The EHIC will be discontinued for all.

I beleive you are mistaken about the EHIC Juan C. If you a holder of the S1 before the end of 2020 you will be entitled to a UK issued EHIC for travel within EU but not for Spain. The S1 entitles you to healthcare in both Spain and UK as if you were a Spanish citizen or a UK resident.
If you are a resident in Spain before the end of 2020 and will, sometime in the future, be entitled to a UK state pension, you will also be entitled to get an S1, or whatever it will be called then, to cover state health care in Spain.
