Patient transfers, livestock worrying to be discussed in Keys

Transport for patients, the future of the former Park Road School site and livestock worrying will be discussed in the House of Keys this morning.

Health Minister Kate Beecroft will be asked to provide an update on the transfer arrangements for Manx patients needing treatment in the UK.

Ayre and Michael MHK Tim Baker puts the question to the Minister after a public backlash to news that a new taxi company will take over patient transfers in Liverpool.

Mr Baker is also seeking statistics over incidents of livestock worrying on the Island in the last three years, and what punishments those prosecuted can expect to face.

Douglas North member David Ashford wants to know what plans there are for the Park Road School site, as well as the former Lord Street Bus Station site.

The sitting gets underway from 10am.
