New Jersey-UK health agreement 'very close'

The health agreement between Jersey and the UK is "very close" to being reinstated, a minister says.

Jersey lost its reciprocal agreement in 2009, which has meant islanders paying for some medical services while in the UK and vice versa.

The UK's Department of Health has agreed in principle for a reinstatement of the agreement, the States said.

Jersey Health Minister Anne Pryke said the new agreement would provide peace of mind for islanders.
