About the Isle of Man and our healthcare system

The Island’s healthcare is provided by a National Health Service based on that in the United Kingdom but is independently financed and administered within the Isle of Man.  Many of the changes brought about to the UK National Health Service, as a consequence of the extensive reorganisations of recent years have not been adopted in the Isle of Man.

Noble’s Hospital is situated in the capital of the Island and is equipped to the very latest standards with an Education and Training Centre and library situated in the grounds. The Hospital provides a comprehensive range of services typical of most District General Hospitals.

The DHSC is currently undertaking a root and branch review of the hospital, its services and its pathways in keeping with its 5-year clinical strategy. This promises to be a truly exciting time for the hospital and especially the Emergency department and Prehospital Care. Work streams working toward a rebuild of embrace an acute care hub bringing together the ambulance service emergency medicine and acute medicine are currently underway.
