Will the department of Health and Social Care increase the amount given to patients travelling to the UK for treatment?

That’s the question on the lips of Onchan MHK Rob Callister, who’ll raise the issue in the House of Keys next week.

He’ll ask the Health and Social Care Minister what plans his department has to up the contribution given to those going to the UK, and also requiring overnight accommodation.

The sitting is due to get underway in Douglas on Tuesday at 10am.
