Manx Care - Sir Jonathan Michaels Report

Totally agree - it's not reassuring to have the transition team reporting to the top bureaucrat. As to the (eventual) membership of Manx Care I fear that, as is so often the case, the quality people won't bother, for all the reasons you list in your post, and we'll end up with Tynwald appointing their mates (again) and hence very much eroding the principal of 'arms length'.

I heard an interview that the Minister of Health had with MTV where he confirmed that all progress on implementing this would have to be reported to both CoMin and Tynwald on a 6 monthly basis. This also makes progress publicly visable!

Nope. Had peripheral involvement in Scottish care, but not NHS. No idea how their practices or performance might differ. If this article is true then it may be that NHS Scotland is well worth a look https://www.thenational.scot/news/16326265.can-you-compare-the-nhs-in-scotland-to-the-rest-of-the-uk/

I'm not sure I'd take what this journal has to say with any salt. It's a mouthpiece for the SNP. So of course all will be sweetness and light. Speak to some Scots, as I frequently do, and you'll hear a mixture of views and experiences. In essence really no different to the rest of the UK. Except they do like to hand out health related benefits like sweets. And if that's not blatant politics then I don't know what is.
