Patient Transfer pilot scheme to be undertaken in collaboration with Bus Vannin

Wednesday, 25 July 2018

The Patient Transfer Office at Noble’s Hospital is piloting a new service in conjunction with Bus Vannin for people who need to travel off-Island for a healthcare appointment.

From Monday 30 July, patients who live in the north of the Island and currently have their on-Island travel funded by the Department of Health and Social Care will be picked up at home and taken to Isle of Man Airport or the Sea Terminal in Douglas by Bus Vannin.

The return minibus service will start at 5am each day and enable patients on the earliest departures to arrive in plenty of time to catch their flight or sailing.

If the pilot proves successful, the service will be extended to all patients, and their travelling companions, across the Island in September.
