£400K donation opens Isle of Man physiotherapy unit

A new physiotherapy and occupational therapy unit has opened at the Ramsey and District Cottage Hospital after a trust donation of £400,000.

The centre was built after support of £350,000 from the Eric and Marion Scott Trust and £50,000 from the Ramsey Cottage Hospital Welfare Trustees.

The hospital facility aims to "enable early intervention" and was officially opened on Monday.

It is the "latest in a long line of improvements," a health spokesman said.

Other developments in recent years made possible by trust donations include a redevelopment of inpatient facilities, a new wound management and podiatry suite and the development of a renal dialysis unit.
