Senior health figures are being accused of misleading the public and members of Tynwald over a review of colorectal surgery at Noble’s Hospital.

The Liberal Vannin Party says it’s concerned about statements made by the Health Minister David Anderson and chief executive David Killip at a Social Affairs Policy Review Committee.

Mr Killip assured the committee that the November review concluded that all cases were appropriately treated and that surgical procedures were acceptable with a report giving no cause for concern.

Liberal Vannin MHK Kate Beecroft says she asked Mr Anderson if he stood by this statement before the document was published.
