Hospital's funding must be clarified

THE murky funding situation of the proposed National Paediatric Hospital (NPH) must be publicly clarified.

One of that board's functions was to "explore the possibility of securing philanthropic contributions to meet all, or part, of the capital cost of developing the hospital".
