1925 - All-in Hospital Scheme

The All-in Scheme. A movement which began in the Dockyard, and has spread through the town has ensured a great increase in revenue to the Royal Hospital, the Ear and Eye Hospital, and other local charities. It was known as the All-in Scheme, the contributors to which make a weekly payment of two-pence. In return for this they have the right to hospital treatment for themselves and their families. As a striking instance of its effects, the direct contribution from the Dockyard has increased from £200 to £5.000 a year.
