The Isle of Man’s Healthcare System

Manx Care

Manx Care is the Isle of Man’s equivalent of the UK’s National Health Service (NHS). It employs around 3,000 colleagues, with an aspiration to be ‘the best small Island health and care system in the world’.

A transformation programme is underway, focused on the provision of integrated services as close to a patient’s home as possible. In parallel, a cultural development programme will transform the colleague experience, allowing them to play a leading role within the transformation of services, supporting their development, and creating an environment where they can flourish in their careers.

Noble’s Hospital

Noble's Hospital is the Island’s only district general hospital and opened in 2003. Equipped to the latest standards, the hospital provides a comprehensive range of services typical of most district general hospitals including acute medicine, general and orthopaedic surgery, maternity, paediatrics, SCBU, ITU & CCU.

Noble’s Hospital was recently named in a General Medical Council (GMC) survey as the best provider of medical education for junior doctors in the first year of their three-year training programme (first out of 170 UK NHS Trusts, 2020-21) - the quality of learning and development provided speaks for itself!
