Manx Care CEO will earn up to £160,000 a year

Position advertised ahead of planned April launch

The Chief Executive of Manx Care will earn up to £160,000 a year.

The role is being advertised by government, as the Cabinet Office looks for a head of the new organisation, which will separate operational matters from policy-making in the Department of Health and Social Care.

It's one of 26 recommendations made in Sir Jonathan Michael's independent review of the Island's health and social care system.

Health Minister David Ashford remains confident Manx Care is on schedule to be introduced by April 2021, as planned, despite delays caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
