The Isle of Man funds and operates its own National Health Service called ManxCare. It’s run on similar lines to the NHS in the UK so health care here on the Island is free at the point of delivery.
We have one main hospital – which is pretty modern – Nobles hospital with the usual doctors’ surgeries located throughout the Island.
If you require some complex investigations or procedures then there is a good chance you will need to go ‘off island’ – at ManxCare’s cost – for treatment in the UK (usually Liverpool) as understandably Nobles cannot deal with every complexity of modern healthcare. There are flights to and from Liverpool for ManxCare patients every day.
Importantly, we have a reciprocal healthcare agreement with the UK which ensures that Isle of Man residents visiting the UK receive free healthcare should the need arise (and vice versa).
