Contribution to health service cists

Whilst it is important that provision of health services should be free to all we should at least make people aware of the cost of their hospital treatment.

A trust could be set up and those people who  wished to contribute towards the cost of their treatment could donate to this trust which would be ring fenced to support front line health services

Why the contribution is important

Health provision is one of our biggest costs and we should be looking at targeting those who can afford it to pay more to directly support front line services

    People already do this via the private surgical wing at Nobles. It's kept quietly out of the way at the rear of the main building so as not antagonise those who prefer most things for free. The private contributions for private health care do indeed supplement the needs of the Manx health service. Just a minor point with regards to extracting more from those who already contribute more than others.
