Manannan Court to welcome patients

A £7.2 million health complex should be ready for its first patients by the end of March.

The Island's new acute inpatient mental health unit, Manannan Court, will replace the Grianagh Court facility.

Based on the Noble's Hospital estate in Braddan, it will see bed spaces increased from 20 to 26.

Health Minister Kate Beecroft hopes there is now a much greater understanding of mental health issues than her predecessor as Lib Van leader, Peter Karran, encountered in the recent past.
