Public Accounts Committee publish evidence of DHSC Medical Director

​On 26th May 2021, the Public Accounts Committee, a standing Committee of Tynwald, took oral evidence in private from Dr Rosalind Ranson, Medical Director of the Department of Health and Social Care.

The evidence session was held as part of the Committee’s inquiries into matters relating to the pandemic.

At its final meeting, the Committee agreed that it would publish the evidence, with Dr Ranson’s consent, along with a copy of the DHSC’s response to the evidence.

A report containing the evidence can be found here and will be laid before Tynwald in October 2021.

The Chair of the Committee, Hon. Juan Watterson SHK, commented “This adds to the growing body of evidence taken by the Committee at the heart of the Covid response; it raises interesting questions, and we have had some useful early answers from the Department of Health and Social Care. There is no doubt that this is something that the next administration will need to focus on as outlined in our annual report.”

The members of the Public Accounts Committee are Hon. Juan Watterson SHK (Chair), Mr Lawrie Hooper MHK (Vice-Chair), Mrs Jane Poole Wilson MLC, Mrs Clare Barber MHK, Ms Julie Edge MHK and Mr Chris Robertshaw MHK. Mrs Barber, as a political Member for the Department of Health and Social Care, did not attend the evidence session.
