Tynwald to debate Palatine move

Tynwald will decide tomorrow whether to approve the relocation of a doctor's surgery in Douglas.

The Palatine Health Centre is currently in Murrays Road, but if approval is given it could move to the Strang.

The current building is too small for the number of doctors and nurses based there, and there are also issues with parking.

A number of options have been considered, including extending the present surgery, but it's been decided a greenfield site adjacent to Noble's Hospital and Newlands would be the best solution.

Practice Manager Heather Paisley doesn't think the planned move would inconvenience patients (audio file attached):
