Concerns some hospital consultants favour private patients

Tue, 08 Feb 2011

There's concern some NHS surgery appointments at Noble's are being cancelled by consultants who're favouring their private patients.

MHK Bill Henderson tabled a question in the House of Keys this morning.

He asked the Health Minister if consultants at the hospital are allowed to do this.

The answer was no, but Mr Henderson says two doctors are notorious for cancelling NHS appointments.

East Douglas MHK Brenda Cannell says she's also been made aware of the issue. [Play audio file below]

Health Minister David Anderson says he will look into the accusations.
