Public asked to avoid Emergency Department unless absolutely necessary

Monday, 24 July 2017

The Emergency Department at Noble’s Hospital is currently experiencing longer than usual waiting times – between five and six hours – following its response to a serious road traffic collision in Laxey this morning.

The public are requested not to attend the Emergency Department unless absolutely necessary.  Instead they should use alternative services, where appropriate, such as: visiting the Minor Injuries Unit at Ramsey and District Cottage Hospital (open 8am to 8pm), contacting their GP Practice, or if outside of practice hours, contacting the Manx Emergency Doctors Service by telephoning 650355.

The Department of Health and Social Care apologies for any inconvenience and appreciates the public’s understanding.
