Outcry over Bridgewater loss

A petition calling on the Manx government to reinstate a long-standing contract for patient transfer in the north-west of England has reached almost 1,300 signatures.

It's emerged Bridgewater, which has provided the specialist taxi runs for the best part of 20 years, recently lost out in a tender process witrh the Department of Health and Social Care.

The case has provoked outcry from Manx patients, who say the level of care is unmatched.

Grace Teare started the petition and departmental member Clare Bettison MHK is claiming it it could have been handled better after finding out the news on social media.
