Immediate freeze on 'non-essential' recruitment

The Department of Health and Social Care has announced an immediate freeze on recruitment of staff in 'non-essential' roles.

Officials say only vacancies critical to frontline sevices will be offered for the foreseeable future.

It's been described as a temporary measure, whilst the Department looks to stay within its £200 million pound budget, and avoid requesting further funding from Tynwald.

During the last two years the health service has received extra cash, totalling £20 million pounds.

Despite the measure, on-going recruitment exerises will be completed.
Minister Kate Beecroft says introducing the freeze was a difficult decision, but 'immediate action' was needed to address the Department's budgetary challenges.

She insists there'll be minimal impact on critical services.
