AGE DISCRIMINATION IN THE NHS IS TO BE OUTLAWED

Tuesday 12 June 2012

Commenting on today's announcement that denying drugs or treatment purely on the grounds of age will be outlawed from October,

AGE DISCRIMINATION IN THE NHS IS TO BE OUTLAWED

 

Paul Green, Head of Communication at Saga comments "It is good news that the Government have listened to our common sense concerns.  Saga can continue to delight people with our over 50s holidays, cruises and bespoke insurance whilst treatment within the NHS, which has provoked much comment, will be dependent on need rather than age.  Let's hope these aims are backed up with better training for staff to help stamp out some ageist attitudes and behaviours."
