Hospital pressure results in surgery cancellations

Isle of Man patients have been told "abnormally high" pressure on emergency services at Noble's Hospital could result in some surgery cancellations.

Extra staff have been allocated to the intensive care department which has led to some surgery cancellations.

Patients will be contacted directly if their treatment has been affected.

A Department of Health spokesman said: "There remains full availability of intensive care beds at Nobles Hospital for emergency admissions."
