Manx health survey reveals confidence

A survey of primary care patients on the Isle of Man has revealed that 96% of them have confidence in their health professionals.

Nearly 800 patients took part in the study which looked at care provided by ambulance crews, community nurses, emergency doctors and therapists.

The survey also found that 98% felt listened to and 93% felt cared for.

It was commissioned by Primary Health Care's Patient Safety and Governance Committee.

Minister for Health David Anderson said: "Primary care staff can be very proud of the results of the survey which show that the vast majority of patients are happy with the care they receive.

"The survey did highlight certain areas where it is felt further improvements could be made and I know that work is already underway to address those areas through the Patient Safety and Governance Committee."
