DHSC defends spending £4 million on expenses

The Department of Health and Social Care is defending its staff expenses figures.

In response to a Tynwald question from Onchan MHK Julie Edge, the department says its staff claimed nearly £4 million for expenses between 2012 and 2017.

During the five years, 63 per cent of that was for staff travelling in their own vehicles to work.

A further 28 per cent was spent on off-Island training and development.

The department says while the figure may seem high, it's a vital part of the services it provides.
