More resignations and changes in last year than Quayle administration

Changes to the Council of Ministers in the past six months have been described as 'quite extraordinary'.

There's been six changes around the Cabinet table since May, the latest being Rob Callister - who was sacked from his role as health minister yesterday.

The Onchan MHK has been in the job for just under two months having been appointed to the Council of Ministers on 16 September.

The former health minister, and current enterprise minister, Lawrie Hooper has been announced as his replacement - the reasoning behind the decision is being put down to his previous experience.

On Tuesday 8 November there was a discussion between the Chief Minister Alfred Cannan and Mr Callister, as Mr Cannan asked him to resign. In a letter on Wednesday 9 November, Mr Callister said that he wished to continue in the office.

In an announcement Thursday 10 November Mr Cannan said that, after a number of discussions in recent days about the operational and political challenges in relation to the Department of Health and Social Care and to the health and care sector more broadly, he had reluctantly concluded  that the Department of Health and Social Care needed a different approach at this critical time.
