Patients encouraged to use Ramsey hospital

Effort to ease pressure on Noble's during TT

Patients with less serious health complaints are being reminded to make use of Ramsey Cottage Hospital.

The Minor Injuries Unit there is staffed by nurses between 8am and 8pm each day.

Health bosses say the majority of those who go there are seen within an hour.

They're encouraging patients to use it, to ease pressure on the 'extremely busy' Accident & Emergency Department at Noble's during TT.

Town MHK Lawrie Hooper says he's keeping a close eye on changes there.
