Elective surgery temporarily suspended at Noble's Hospital

Thu, 14 Oct 2021

Elective operations which were due to take place at Noble’s today and tomorrow are being re-scheduled to allow for the installation of essential new equipment in the operating theatres.

Patients whose operations have had to be postponed this week will be kept informed of plans to reschedule their procedures, and this is expected to be within the next two weeks.

Manx Care confirmed emergency, trauma and obstetrics cases will continue.

State-of-the-art operating tables and other new associated equipment are to be installed and commissioned by specialists from the UK, whose visit to the Island to carry out the work has been delayed due to the pandemic. The two day period is a window of opportunity to complete the installation and prepare and train staff in use of the new equipment.
