Patient transfer lounge build underway

Funded by Manx Breast Cancer Support Group

Patients traveling off-Island for medical treatment will soon have access to a dedicated accessible waiting area.

Work has now begun on a patient transfer room in the departure lounge at Ronaldsway Airport.

The Manx Breast Cancer Support Group has funded the development, with assistance from airline Flybe.

A similar facility is also due to open at Liverpool John Lennon Airport in the near future.

Ronaldsway staff say disruption will be 'kept to a minimum' as the works continue.
