Public Meeting on Health & Social Care

On Monday, March 27th, Liberal Vannin’s Leader and Member of the Council of Ministers, Lawrie Hooper, MHK, Minister for Health & Social Care will be leading a discussion on the developing policy framework for the Island’s Health & Social Care services.

He will be joined on the panel by:

Teresa Cope, Chief Executive of Manx Care

Maureen Cowbourne, Chief Executive Officer, Age Concern

Annabel Ennett, Head of Services, Isle Listen

David Hamilton, Interim Executive Director of Social Care, Manx Care

Lee Vorster, Chair of the Health Services Consultative Committee

Our health & social care services face many challenges and the future direction of travel is of concern to most if not everyone on the Island.

Liberal Vannin believes that everyone is entitled to an excellent standard of health care, free at the point of use and that it is essential that funding continues to be sufficient, in order to provide that.

Integrating health and social care services has been talked about for long enough and we expect steps to be put in place during this administration to see a clear way forward.

We hope to see as many as possible come along to the Manx Legion Club, Douglas at 7.30pm on Monday, March 27th to make your views heard.
