Health minister to face questions over oral health on the Isle of Man at the next Tynwald sitting
The Isle of Man’s health minister, Kate Beecroft, is set to face questions about oral health on the island when Tynwald, the island’s parliament, sits for the last time before the summer recess later this month.
Members of the body, including Ramsey MHK, Alex Allinson, expect answers from the minister in response to questions about the provision of dental care in the north of the island and access to urgent dental treatment. David Ashford, from Douglas North, is keen to gain an insight into how successful attempts have been to deliver measures outlined by the Department of Health and Social Care at a previous gathering. He also plans to find out what kinds of additional strategies Ms Beecroft and her team are planning to implement to improve oral healthcare on the island. Previously, the department drew up ten key strategies, which were aimed at improving access to dental services, reducing waiting times, and promoting good oral health.
It is also believed that members plan to ascertain more information about the availability of orthodontic care on the island amid increased demand for services among young people.
Tynwald will sit for the last time before the summer recess on Tuesday 18th July.
