Farming must think outside the box

Farming and the Health Budget.5.Care in the Community.

There are sectors in farming with spare B & B capacity, some at certain times of the year, some 365. With the right training and support, there is a capability here to integrate with the Health budget. One post-hospital treatment supervisor could manage, say, 5 to 10 farm sites with maybe upwards of 20 patients (customers?).    We need to make better use of tax-payers/ cash by integrating different parts of the economy and getting two benefits for the price of one. Fresh air, gold good, genuinely caring people, relaxing recuperation could improve recovery rates.
