Charter will 'ensure success' at DHSC

Views sought on healthcare rules

Public views are wanted on a new binding charter for health services in the Island.

A set of principles governing the new National Health and Care Service (NHCS) is being developed, and will be brought to Tynwald this October.

Government says the charter will 'ensure the success' of the NHCS by formally acknowledging its responsibilities.

Prioritising mental health on par with physical health, giving users access to their own medical records, and reducing the deficit are among the pledges made.

People can submit opinions on the charter until 5 September via the gov.im website.
