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 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.
The Health and Care Transformation Programme recognises that the COVID-19 situation on Island has placed significant, additional pressures on many Government staff, in particular within the Department for Health and Social Care (DHSC). With this in mind, the Programme Team have been working to agree with the Chief Secretary a revised approach for the Health and Care Transformation Programme to allow work to continue over the next few months. The Programme will focus on the areas that need limited input from DHSC team members, helping to ensure that our health and care colleagues can focus on the COVID-19 crisis at hand. This approach aims to keep the work moving in an appropriate way; ready for when our stakeholders have more time to input on the future of health and social care on the Isle of Man. We will continue to review this in line with how the COVID-19 situation progresses.
As part of the planned work within the Programme and in support of Recommendation 9 from Sir Jonathan's Final Report, with effect from 1 April 2020 the Public Health Directorate now sits within the Cabinet Office.
