Bridgewater petition tops 1,500

Patients demand taxi company's reinstatement

A petition to have Bridgewater Taxis reinstated as the patient transfer service has topped 1,500 signatures.

It's emerged the Liverpool-based company, which has provided the specialist taxi journeys for the best part of 20 years, recently lost the contract to do so.

This followed a tender process by the Department of Health and Social Care.

The case has provoked outcry from Manx patients and their families, who say the level of care is unparalleled.
