The Minister for Health and Children has given special funding to the NTPF for this specific purpose. The NTPF is there to reduce the waiting time for public patients. Treatment is arranged in private hospitals in Ireland. Northern Ireland or England. As a result of the NTPF over 17,000 patients (August 2004 have been treated and taken off public hospital waiting lists. The NTPF is arranging treatment each month for at least 1,000 public patients who are waiting over three months for an operation . The numbers of patients being treated monthly is rising . It is entirely your choice to take part in this initiative. Patients who choose treatment with the NTPF will receive their operation or procedure free of charge. Medical card entitlements are not affected in any way. Some people think because they are not seriously ill or waiting years for an operation that the NTPF is not for them. This is not the case. The NTPF treats young and old and will help patients who require major as well as minor procedures. Overleaf you will find information on how the NTPF works as well as answers to any questions you may have.
