After the original post here about going abroad it kinda stuck in my mind that if you go abroad these days within Europe you need to have a health insurance card. They’re free to order online and you put your kids on it too (And partner if you have one)
Here’s the link to order them so I recommend getting one now so you already have one when its time to go abroad- its free.
“If you are a UK resident, you are entitled to medical treatment that becomes necessary, at reduced cost or sometimes free, when temporarily visiting a European Union (EU) country, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway or Switzerland. Only treatment provided under the state scheme is covered. However, to obtain treatment you will need to take a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) with you”
