Noble's hospital provides a dedicated 24-hour Emergency Department service for people who live or are visiting the Isle of Man.

All patients are assessed by a nurse using the triage system and will then be seen by clinical priority. Understandably, the more serious injuries or illnesses are treated first. See video below for more detail.
