Perspective 8.1.23 - the Henry Bloom Noble Healthcare Trust has been providing invaluable support to the health of our nation for nearly 135 years.
Friday, 6 January 2023 - 50 minutes
With our health services really struggling at the moment it may be time to learn some lessons from the past. On Perspective this week we hear from representatives of the Henry Bloom Noble Healthcare Trust about its work over the near 135 years since it was established. I imagine the Health Minister would be delighted if a wealthy philanthropist offered to build new facilities and pay for their running costs. Is it time to embrace the past and recognise public funds are no longer enough to pay for our health services?
