Member's Bill: SuperGold Health Check Bill

The purpose of this Bill is to strengthen Primary Healthcare by giving SuperGold cardholders 3 free doctors’ visits every year.
The health checks only need to prevent 1% of seniors from hospital admission to be fiscally neutral. Preventing the elderly from hospital admission has huge financial, emotional and social benefits as many elderly lose confidence after extended time in hospital.
The Bill is also future-proofed; as doctors report more elderly are prevented from hospital care, there is good cause to increase the number of free visits.
