Health issues biggest concern for Manx residents

Manx Radio survey highlights 'What Matters Most?'

Health and social care is the biggest concern for Manx residents, according to the results of a Manx Radio survey.

Almost 800 people responded to the 'What Matters Most?' questionnaire, with health issues topping the poll.

More than half (55%) listed health and social care as the most important Island-wide issue, with 42% selecting it as the main area for concern at constituency level as well.

Care for the elderly proved the second-greatest concern, with mental health completing the top three.

The Steam Packet Company, recycling and climate change were also common themes, while Douglas promenade, poverty and pensions featured in the top 10.

The findings of the survey will be used to inform a series of programmes.
