Cradle to grave


THE health conundrum can be solved if politics are removed. Health care must be wholly inclusive and free, whether it’s provided by the GP, a hospital or care home.

However, hotel costs in a care home or hospital have to be met by the patient. This would be covered by a compulsory insurance scheme.

A scheme of this kind is cradle to grave care.

It is also not unreasonab­le for those who are not British citizens or resident here for a minimum of two years to be required to meet all their healthcare costs.

Such a scheme would save the NHS money and ensure all those in care homes are well looked after.
