There has been a U-turn over plans to cancel off-island treatments for Guernsey patients in December.

The cancellation of UK appointments was among cuts announced by the island's Health Department in a move to minimise an estimated £2.5m overspend.

The 180 patients whose appointments will now go ahead are due to hear from the department by the end of the week.
