The island’s financial watchdogs want to hear from people who have views about why the island’s health service is overspendng so much.
Public Accounts Committee of Tynwald is investigating.
Anyone with experience of, or views relating to, the effectiveness and efficiency of the services provided by Noble’s Hospital is being invited to write to the committee who ’wish to encourage a broad range of individuals and organisations to submit evidence’.
Submissions will only be published if express permission is given and so contact details must be included.
The chairman of the committee, Juan Watterson SHK, said: ’We are all aware of government’s difficulties in balancing the books, so this £11.1m overspend will be of great concern to the public.
’The PAC hope that this inquiry will ensure that no stone is left unturned in the quest to ensure our NHS is efficient and effective as it can be. The general public and staff have a clear interest in this. We’d welcome a wide range of strategic ideas and submissions.
’We also hope that the inquiry will serve to enhance the understanding of the public on the cost pressures of the Department of Health and Social Care.’
He added: ’We won’t be investigating medical complaints as that falls outside our remit.’
Submissions should be sent to the clerk of the committee by Friday, February 17.
