Hi Izzy it's ok thank you for the information
My husband had the same problem with Lloyds bank he had been insured for a few years when he was diagnosed with Alzheimers they refused to cover him. This year we both travelled to Malta for a week with Columbus it was very reasonable. There is no problem with Alzheimers they dont even want to know what stage it is. They were more interested in his Type 2 diabetes.
I got very reasonable cover through Flexicover.co.uk for my husband. He has PCA a rare type of Alzheimer's. Their phone number is 0800 093 9495 or go on line.
Hi Optomistic it was Lloyds that dropted me as well
I've used Flexicover on the past too. They were fine.

European Health Insurance Card
I do hope you all remember to take this card with you,it will give you a basic cover at least.
It's important to remember that this doesn't automatically get you free health care abroad. You may have to pay for certain things depending on which country you are in.
I think that this booklet gives a good explanation from about page 7 -

A leaflet just fell out of my new TV mag with a 10% off code for Staysure: TC99
Sorry to join this conversation so late everybody.
In the past I have used AgeUk and Saga for travel insurance. Their websites both collect medical information and easily covered me for a reasonable price for dementia, stroke and type 2 diabetes.
On the off chance recently I tried Insure and Go. Previously they declined to cover my dementia, but they have updated their medical screening and have accepted all my conditions for less than Saga or ageUK.
i only found 1 company that would give me annual cover and they wanted to charge a ludicrous amount (about £800). I can't even remember who it was
