Southlands 'demand' not high

Demand from patients seeking care at a southern residential home is not as high as suggested.

So says the Social Care Minister Martyn Quayle.

He’s vowed to address concerns about why part of Southlands remains closed.

The three MHKs for Rushen have made a joint approach on behalf of constituents, whose families say need residential care.

However, Mr Quayle believes most patients are provided for.
