  1. Dilli - didn’t your wife get a six figure handshake for taking the easy way out of the Nobles management suite?
  2. Couldn’t agree more - an open dialogue with the public (and not politicians) on what our health service should deliver within the current budget (or whether an increase in taxes is required so we can offer more) is needed ASAP.
  3. Train travel is as much as air travel, especially if it’s short notice!
  4. Very good point sir
  5. https://www.nhs.uk/using-the-nhs/help-with-health-costs/healthcare-travel-costs-scheme-htcs/# just an idea!
  6. As a relative recent comeover I was surprised to learn the generous allocation from the government for travel and accommodation travelling to hospital appointments in the U.K. I personally had been used to funding my own expenses for such matters (as had my fellow 60m Britons). Now I learn there is a review to explore whether more should be given to those who travel for expensive and life saving treatment delivered by the NHS. Am I the only one thinking ‘this is madness?’ Given our low tax environment and healthcare problems on island, shouldn’t we be stumping up our own Flybe tickets and premier inn stays?
