Patient transfer complaints, river dredging to be discussed in Keys

Charges for plastic bags, complaints about patient transfers and river dredging will all be discussed in this week's sitting of the House of Keys.

Douglas North MHK David Ashford wants to know how many complaints the Department of Health and Social Care has received since ComCab Liverpool took charge of the patient transfer taxi service earlier this year.

Health Minister Kate Beecroft will also be asked how the complaints are being used to make changes to the service.

The Chairman of Manx Utilities will face questions about the dredging of Silverburn River, while Middle MHK Bill Shimmins wants to know about plans to bring in carrier bag charges on the Island.

The House sits from 10am.
