Professor van Woerden takes up post on a temporary basis

The Isle of Man Government has confirmed an interim director of public health has been appointed.

Professor Hugo van Woerden takes up the role on a temporary basis following the retirement of Dr Henrietta Ewart last month.

In a statement issued to Manx Radio government says Professor van Woerden has 20 years' experience at a senior level in the field of public health.

He's recently held director of public health roles in Northern Ireland and National Health Service Highland.
