Department of Health responds to consultation feedback for proposed surgery at Michael School 15 April 2011

Hon David Anderson MHK - Minister for HealthThe Department of Health would like to thank the Department of Education and Children for suggesting a potential solution to provide more suitable GP facilities in Kirk Michael, by offering use of a spare classroom at Michael Primary School as a possible part-time surgery. The Department would also like to thank Michael School for its co-operation and Michael Commissioners for facilitating the consultation process to ascertain the level of support for the proposal within the village and parish.

As a result of the majority of respondents to the consultation being against the proposal, the Department of Health has decided not to proceed. A total of 80 responses were receive, with 31 (38%) in support of the proposals and 49 (62%) opposed.

The Department has been unable to find more suitable premises for the part-time surgery presently located at Cannan Court and is progressing a further extension to the temporary planning approval to enable continued provision of surgery facilities on the site.

Minister for Health, David Anderson MHK, said: “It is disappointing that a unique community facility at the heart of the village is not to progress, but I recognise that the majority of those who responded to the questionnaire were content with the status quo.”
