Oral Question 4

For Oral Answer:The Hon Member for Onchan (Mr Karran) to ask the Minister for Health and Social Security –

Who in your Department has responsibility for policing the St Christopher’s service?

Answer

Mr Speaker,

The Department’s Registrations & Inspections unit has an officer appointed who undertakes inspection of all units on an announced and unannounced basis.

The process is reviewed on an annual basis by the political Member for Social Services and the last review was undertaken in July last year.

Oral Question 5

For Oral Answer:The Hon Member for Onchan (Mr Karran) to ask the Minister for Health and Social Security –

In view of the fact that proposals have been leaked from a Report about the United Kingdom Department of Health and Social Security, suggesting drastic staff reductions in the Health Service can you assure this House that this will not happen here?

Answer

Mr Speaker,

I feel that the Honourable Member is referring to an Early Draft Workforce Strategy 2007 prepared by the DoH Workforce Directive in November 2006 and was reported in the 4th, January, 2007 edition of the Health Services Journal. The report is predicated on certain assumptions which may not apply to the Isle of Man but the Department must give serious regard to the final observations and staffing numbers will always be subject to review from the perspective of value for money and efficiency.

This would seem to be in line with the concerns recently expressed by the Honourable Member in respect of what he refers to as clipboard managers at Noble’s Hospital.
