The Department of Health has re-issued details of its pay to agency staff following an earlier mistake.

The figures originally suggested the Department spent £2.4million on agency hospital staff in 2007 to 2008.

This figure was released in the answer to a Tynwald question at this month's sitting.

Officers of the Department have since revised this figure as just over £4.1million.

It's believed this error was made due to a new financial system taking control of the data.

Health Minister David Anderson has apologised for the mistake.
