Health and Care Transformation


The Health and Care Transformation Programme is being delivered by the Cabinet Office in conjunction with the Department of Health and Social Care and the Treasury in order to deliver on the 26 recommendations set out in Sir Jonathan Michael’s Independent Review of the Isle of Man’s Health and Social Care System.

Programme Update

In support of Recommendation 2 from Sir Jonathan’s Final Report, with effect from 1 April 2021, Manx Care has taken over the service delivery functions of the Department of Health and Social Care. This was achieved thanks to the Manx Care Act 2021 which was given Royal Assent in March 2021.

Meanwhile, the DHSC retains its functions in terms of the setting of policy and strategy. As part of this, the Health and Care Transformation Programme and the DHSC are currently working together to update the Island’s health and social care complaints process and we would love to hear your views about the current proposals. You can read further details in this Article and complete the Public Consultation via the Consultation hub. The consultation will close at the end of Monday 18 October.

Please visit the Surveys and Consultations page, which is regularly updated as and when we have additional surveys open for participation. This page also summarises findings of previous surveys.
