Call to weigh up Guernsey-UK reciprocal health agreement

Related Stories

The pros and cons of re-entering a reciprocal health agreement with the UK should be weighed up, one Guernsey deputy has said.

The previous deal under which people from the Crown Dependencies could receive free health care in the UK and vice versa ended in April 2009.

Jersey signed a new agreement on Friday and the Isle of Man in September 2010.

Deputy Matt Fallaize said the £500,000 a year it may cost Guernsey could be used for other health care initiatives.
