Nursing home capacity question for Tynwald

The Island's nursing home capacity will be discussed at this month's sitting of Tynwald.

Health and Social Care Minister Kate Beecroft will face questions following the announcement that King's Reach Care Home in Ramsey will close later this year.

Ayre & Michael MHK Tim Baker wants to know what the Island's current total bed capacity is.

He'll also ask Mrs Beecroft how this is affected by the closure, and what capacity is needed for the Island's projected future requirements.

Tynwald sits for the final time before the summer recess next week.
