Noble’s Hospital is a 330 bedded District General Hospital, split over 2 floors and located on the outskirts of Douglas, which serves the island’s 85,000 residents and 300,000 annual visitors.
Built on a greenfield site, many other Health and Social Care divisions are located on the same campus allowing the hospital to work closely with services such as Palliative Care, Mental Health services and Public Health. It also works with voluntary organisations and local community groups.
Ramsey District and Cottage Hospital is the only other hospital on the island, which mainly provides minor injury, physiotherapy, and other satellite services to the north of the island.
The island has an active 24/7 air ambulance service, which transports patients requiring specialist care to the UK. During TT and Manx Grand Prix, the hospital brings in air-med services for casualties requiring emergency care, particularly motorcycle trauma. During these periods, the population of the island nearly doubles with large amounts of visitors coming to spectate and ride on the TT course.
Noble’s takes Foundation and Core Medical Trainees annually and is part of NHS Health Education North West for medical training.
A small number of elective placements are available at Noble’s Hospital, mostly during July and August, however other periods may be available also.
