Mr Peters MHK claimed in October 2021 that a worker had advised him that the IOM health services would be in special measures if it was in the UK. A certain Minister, rewarded for his leadership during Covid rubbished the claims. Yet here we are one year later….

If DHSC are responsible for policy making and Manx Care for the delivery of healthcare then surely Mr Hooper and his minions should be answerable in some part for out of date health policies?. Incidentally, a web search will turn up all sorts of policies which are out of date across government.

Hooper will just say another £15mln needs throwing at it to bring in some folk from across to fix it all.

Or a trip to New Zealand with some other parasite hanging onto his coat tails.

If Manx Care don't know what's broken they can't fix it.

Correct. Short of doing a public confidential consultation the full extent of the potential impact on people will never be known.

The report will frighten some people on the island if they have had cause to use A and E and had problems during this period. What are they now expected to do ?

The demoralising effect on staff will be significant and now other areas will be bracing themselves for possible similar feedback. 

As an ex Nobles manager It is sad to see the services so depleted and in the state the report indicates. It wasn't always like this. Some of my colleagues worked damned hard till the middle of the night in some cases to try and improve things.

The NPM this morning has an interview with ex Minister of the DHSC David Ashford, who comments that he wasn’t surprised by the CQC report published yesterday. He further says that changing the culture could take decades. 
 

This really is appalling and shows that these politicos clowns either know what’s going on, are turning a blind eye to neglect and incompetence or Ministers in charge are incompetent themselves. Ashford was awarded his MBE based on his all brilliance during the pandemic, so he must have been aware of the culture but chose to do nothing - which is unforgivable. He really is now by his frankness proving that he isn’t fit to work within a department and certainly not fit to be a Minister.

I will say this, that it’s not totally Ashford who is incompetent but also ex CM Quayle who was formerly ex DHSC Minister, along with ex Minister DHSC Beecroft.

Beecroft / Kinrade was sacked because she was trying to tackle the Nobles issue and Couch didn't want political interference.

The problems pre-date him, if he knew how bad it was what steps did he take to improve it?

I suspect his wife will be on shortly to defend him.

He supported having independent reviews included in the Manx Care legislation, and publicly voiced concerns about the culture, apparently.  However, he was keen to put deep blue sea between himself and personnel issues in the health service whilst Minister. I think we have seen one pretty public example of that. 

The two stances do not stack up.

Hooper is like a “Rabbit in the headlights” just sitting staring.   He is not a leader, like Beacroft he is all mouth no action

Less mouth to go with no action once he got a ministerial position. 
He needs to step aside and let someone who isn’t afraid of senior civil managers step in.

I know Beecroft isn’t / wasn’t popular on these boards: but she took over an office in Nobles one day a week and encouraged staff to drop in and discuss concerns on a one-to-one basis.  It ended in failure when Couch sacked her, but I believed that she was really trying to do something positive.

It’s hard to imagine Minister Hooper or Professor Lord Ashford even considering something like this, which exposes them to the actual views and experiences of the workers at the sharp end.
