Beecroft quits Health Minister role

The Minister for Health and Social Care has resigned after 15 months in the role.

Chief Minister Howard Quayle has announced that he has accepted Kate Beecroft's resignation.

Mrs Beecroft was appointed to the Ministerial post last October, but has had two political members resign and dealt with budget issues during her time in the job.

Mr Quayle has thanked the Douglas South MHK for her work, which he says has sought to put the Island's health service on a sustainable footing.
