Politicians to consider possible alternatives 

A future system of funding nursing and residential care in the Island might not suit everyone.

That's the conclusion of the Minister of Policy and Reform.

Chris Thomas will present a report to Tynwald this month, outlining alternative models for paying for care.

It suggests commissioning a more detailed investigation of a mixed model system, like the one used in Jersey.

Mr Thomas says whichever solution is chosen will be a compromise.
