Health strategy debated

A five-point plan designed to curb the rising cost of health and social care for Island residents went before Tynwald yesterday (Tuesday).

The new strategy, which is for the next five years, aims to shift certain aspects of care from hospital to the community.

The plan makes preventing ill health and disease a priority - with a fresh focus on reducing obesity, smoking and alcohol abuse.

There's also a commitment to using modern techniques, where diagnoses are carried out remotely.

Health and Social Care Minister Howard Quayle says there's still more work to be done on the strategy, and wants the Manx public to contribute to it.
