MHK calls for increased respite care availability

Onchan member seeks details from Health Minister

An MHK believes respite care should be available to book further in advance on the Isle of Man.

Onchan member Rob Callister is asking about the services currently offered to local residents in today's sitting of the House of Keys (Tues 27)

The question was tabled after he met with a constituent who wants to be able to make arrangements further in advance than the current provision allows.

Mr Callister says carers need to be able to take a break.
