EU Travel Card
While the UK is within the EU you have the right to free movement and also healthcare in EU member states. A valid european health insurance card (EHIC) gives you the right to access state-provided healthcare during a temporary stay in another European Economic Area (EEA) country or Switzerland.
The EHIC covers treatment that is medically necessary until your planned return home. Treatment should be provided on the same basis as it would to a resident of that country, either at a reduced cost or, in many cases, free of charge.
If the UK does leave the EU it is essential you apply for travel insurance as this right will be lost.
