Policy & Resources Committee - P.2022/58

The States are asked to decide:-

Whether, after consideration of the Policy Letter entitled "Reciprocal Health Arrangement between the Bailiwick of Guernsey and the United Kingdom" dated 13th June, 2022, they are of the opinion :-

1.  To approve the principles (set out in Section 9 of the Policy Letter) for the States of Guernsey's participation in a future Reciprocal Health Arrangement with the United Kingdom's Government for the benefit of eligible Guernsey residents when visiting the UK and in regard to the costs for the provision of planned treatment pre-authorised by the States of Guernsey.

2. To direct the Policy & Resources Committee to maintain efforts to ensure that Guernsey's interests (and, subject to the necessary authorisations from Alderney and Sark, the Bailiwick's interests) continue to be represented to the UK Government's Department of Health and Social Care during negotiations on the Reciprocal Health Arrangement and any associated arrangements/ agreements.

3. To authorise the Policy & Resources Committee, in consultation with the Committee for Health & Social Care, if the Committee is of the view that the provisions of the final forms of the Reciprocal Health Arrangement with the UK Government's Department of Health and Social Care and any associated  arrangements/agreements give satisfactory effect to the principles (set out in Section 9 of the Policy Letter), to agree and enter into that Arrangement and any associated arrangements/agreements, on behalf of Guernsey, and subject to the necessary authorisations, also on behalf of Alderney and Sark.

4. To direct the Policy & Resources Committee, in consultation with the Committee for Health & Social Care, to agree the necessary arrangements with the Chief Pleas of Sark (or any committee operating on their behalf) and the States of Alderney (or any committee operating on their behalf and to the extent necessary in the context of transferred services under the 1948 Agreement) to implement, monitor and manage the final agreed Reciprocal Health Arrangement and any associated arrangements/agreements.

5. To direct the Committee for Health & Social Care to make the necessary arrangements to implement, monitor and manage the Reciprocal Health Arrangement and any associated arrangements/agreements on behalf of Guernsey and subject to the necessary authorisations, also on behalf of Alderney and Sark to the extent required.

6. To direct the CommitteeforHealth & Social Care, following the implementation of the Reciprocal Health Arrangement and any associated arrangements/agreements with the UK, to review whether to recommend that the States should rescind the Resolutions about introducing a scheme for funding of medical treatment for Guernsey and Alderney residents travelling in the UK (Billet d'État VII Volume 3, Resolutions 1 & 2 dated 19th March, 2020).
