1986 PRIVATE HEALTH SERVICES

       HEALTH IN GUERNSEY              
                                       
   Guernsey does not have a NHS,       
 although the cost of a hospital stay  
 is met by the States (Guernsey        
 Government).  A visit to the doctor,

   The number of doctors per head of   
 population is very high.  This is in  
 part a reflection of the high incomes 
 doctors can expect from private

   The incidence of lung cancer and    
 alcholism is a particular cause for   
 concern among the local medical       
 profession.

In 2011 the BBC published the survey online and for six months invited updates to the photographs and text to celebrate the 25th anniversary.

Shortly afterwards the website was added to The National Archives’ UK Government Web Archive.
