The Island's Health Minister will give an update on progress to improve the safety of patients.

The Department of Health and Social Care is bringing in 233 of the 290 changes recommended in a report into a UK NHS trust to ensure similar failings don't happen here.

Kate Beecroft will update Tynwald at this month's sitting, confirming that some of the recommendations have already been implemented, but there's still more to be done.

Progress has already been made to set up external peer reviews and improve public engagement.

However, the report will show work still needs to be done to bring in additional regulation of health and care services, and create a single complaints scheme.
