Lead scientist behind Covid-19 testing lab resigns

Dr Rachel Glover previously clashed with ministers

The lead scientist behind the Island's Covid-19 testing lab says she's resigned from the DHSC.

Dr Rachel Glover had previously clashed with ministers, taking aim on social media.

In a series of tweets, Dr Glover originally said she'd not been asked to contribute to a document on the testing regime being prepared for the Council of Ministers.

More recently she was caught in a dispute with Health Minister David Ashford over the terms of her employment.

When asked whether Dr Glover would continue to work with the on-Island testing centre, she said she 'hopes to'.

Dr Glover declined an interview with Manx Radio.
