There is a growing population of older black and minority ethnic people in the UK many of whom were born abroad and so may consider returning to their country of birth when they retire. Those who do return after living in the UK for decades may face increased costs in accessing healthcare services or find that they are losing income through their UK state pension having been frozen in value. This qualitative study shows how people actually make the decision of whether to spend retirement overseas or not.
