Due to current staffing challenges in the ED at Noble’s Hospital, Manx Care is asking people to consider using the Minor Injuries Unit (MIU) in Ramsey to receive treatment for minor injuries or illnesses.
This is due to affect the hospital today and tomorrow.
Manx Care has said: ‘MIU is open 8am-8pm, 7 days a week, and can treat a wide range of injuries and illnesses. You may be seen more quickly (incorporating travel times) than if you attend the ED.
‘ED will be prioritising the treatment of patients who present with severe illness or injury, meaning potentially long waits for those attending Noble’s with a minor injury or illness.’
