Sorry, your selective quoting suggests that I wasn't clear enough.

It's specifically NHS rules that I'm interested in, and what happens if you're
not working. (EU nationals are entitled to live here, but it's not clear what
health service provision they can get, and whether what they can get is less
if they're not working. And the bloody government doesn't seem to put the
rules online anywhere findable)
