The island's fracture and orthopaedic clinic will be moving back to Noble’s Hospital from next week.

The orthopaedic outpatients and fracture clinic, currently based in Ramsey and District Cottage Hospital’s wound management clinic, is moving to its old location next to the emergency department at Noble’s from April 3.

This move will enable the upgrade of X-Ray facilities at the cottage hospital.

In the meantime, a temporary X-Ray facility will be available at the cottage hospital to provide services to the minor injuries and illnesses unit. The move is necessary because a fixed X-Ray facility is required for orthopaedic patients.

Patients who have an orthopaedic or fracture clinic appointment from Monday, April 3, should attend the fracture and orthopaedic clinic at Noble’s Hospital.

The clinic is next to the emergency department, and is accessed from the main hospital corridor (west wing). Those who have already been offered appointments that are now affected will be contacted and any appointments offered will include details of the new location.

If you have any queries or concerns regarding your appointment, contact the patient information centre on 01624 650103.
