Why is my child being charged international fees but receiving free NHS healthcare?

My daughter holds a British Passport.

We are paying "international tuition fees" because we are told of a residency rule of 3 years. However, when we enquire about health care coverage with the NHS, we are told her health care is free because of the British Passport, British Citizen status and her right to abode.

We are confused as these two things i.e. tuition and health care seem to have different rules? Can you clarify please?
We are not experts on healthcare but we do know about tuition fees. Indeed tuition fees status is based on residency and not nationality. So if what you have sourced about the NHS is correct, the 2 systems would appear to have different rules.

UKCISA is the best go to source for info about home or overseas fees:
