RHA does not cover repatriation

Thu, 09 Sep 2010

Chief Minister Tony Brown has used today's signing of the reciprocal health agreement to remind islanders that it does not cover getting them back to the island after an accident.

He's advised anyone visiting the UK to still take out travel insurance prior to leaving the island.
