Poll: Should we bring in an 'NCT for people'?

One Dáil hopeful says the proposal would “save lives as well as money”.

WE DEMAND CAR-OWNERS get their vehicle checked out every few years – why not bring in a similar regular check-up for people?

That’s the proposition from Fine-Gael-turned-independent TD Denis Naughten, who’s running for reelection in the Roscommon-Galway constituency.

“Introducing a free national health check for every citizen, every four years, with more frequent tests for high risk categories will catch illness earlier and save lives as well as money,” Naughten said in a statement.

Do you support his proposal?
