TO MANY CITIZENS-This fund provides opportunity to discharge a sacred social obligation to the Community and the

unfortunate at the small but regular rate of sixpence a week.

TO OTHER CITIZENS-The spending of sixpence is of vital importance in the weekly household budget. This sixpence

buys wisely - splendid hospital benefits and your own personal independence.

TO ALL CITIZENS-One of the greatest voluntary Hospital systems in the world must be saved from Bankruptcy and

stabilised financially by a regular flow of revenue from all citizens.

DIRE POSITION OF HOSPITALS

The financial circumstances of the majority of Hospitals are deplorable. Financial chaos and bankruptcy are pending. All past means of finance have failed or broken down.

Restriction of finance is restriction of hospital services, yet demand for patients* accommodation increases week by week. Patients are being refused admittance daily or admission is deferred for weeks. The position is not new. It has been always present. Urgent action is essential. All must co-operate. The Fund provides the idea and the opportunity. You must db the rest.

WHAT THE FUND CAN DO

Co-operative support of the Fund will place the finances of the Public Hospitals on a secure, sensible basis.

Support of the Fund will give the Hospitals a regular, not a spasmodic, flow of revenue. The present financial stringency will

disappear.

Certainty of income will enable the Hospitals to guarantee certainty of accommodation to the patients at all times.

Make the Fund a success and money will be available for expansion, improvement, and development of all Hospital services.

Tiie Law says you must pay for HOSPITAL MAINTENANCE according to means.

You Pay in Full, or Get £2/9/- a week Benefit with the Fund?

BENEFITS

( 1 ) Contributors admitted to the Public Wards of a Metropolitan

Hospital are not required to pay for accommodation or medical fees. They also receive without extra charge the whole of the services pf the Hospital.

(2) Intermediate or Private Ward patients get a credit in cash

of 7/- per day against cost of maintenance in any public hospital in the Metropolitan Area.

(3) At any other Hospital, even at Private Hospitals, you get

in certain circumstances, a cash payment against your accommodation charges of 6/- per day or £2/2/- per

week.

(4) Maternity cases are provided for and any married couple

can, as a Contributor, make sure of financial assistance when

needed.

(5) An accident may befall any person. Again the Fund pro-?

tects a Contributor at once.

BENEFITS

(6) Patients requiring X-Ray and other scientific services are

helped because they are contributors,

r. (7) Certain patients leaving Hospital and becoming out-

patients are still assisted and are given free treatment for

one month.

(8) Contributors entitled to sickness benefits from any par-

ticular society or organisation can still come under the benefits of the Fund. In the same way Contributors covered by Workmen's Compensation Insurance can still get the help of this Scheme.

(9) If while outside the Metropolitan Area a Contributor meets

with an accident or has a sudden illness, the Fund will pay 6/- a day of £.2/2/- a week for him.

(10) Sixpence a week covers not only yourself as a Contributor,

.but your Wife, Children, and, in certain circumstances, Father, Mother, Sister, or Brother.

Sickness, disease, accident are no respecters of persons. At any time, they may claim any individual. And that may mean heavy, hospital charges, unproductive weeks, a drain on your

savings, even destitution.

Wives, Mothers, and Daughters will be the first to realise^'the benefits of this Fund. It is by them that the worry, the strain, the anxiety of illness are borne. All those anxieties will vanish ^if they can be sure their families are sure of hospital attention without a shattering expense bill against the weekly wage.

be a Contributor

Wealthy or financially independent citizens should co- operate at once. Sixpence is a negligible amount to you. Your example will be effective.

Employers, Business Men, Staff Managers will realise the benefits of this Contribution Fund in added efficiency. In their own as, well as their employees' interests they will co-operate in

making it successful.

The wage earner will realise that for a tiny sum of sixpence per week, he can provide in good health for himself and family in

time of sickness.

The Benevolent Society of New South Wales forms one of the constituent bodies of this Fund, and the Hospitals under the control of the Society must be added

to the list of 25 participating Hospitals publicly notified on the 19th instant.
