TEMPORARY RELOCATION OF OUR IN PATIENT SERVICES TO SOUTHLANDS IN PORT ERIN

Enhancing our Healing Environment (EHE)

Since our current home was built 12 years ago there have been some significant changes in the needs of our patients, along with changes to regulations which mean we now need to enhance our environment.

In June 2019, our In Patient unit temporarily moved to Southlands in Port Erin to enable the Enhancing our Healing Environment project works to commence. These services will remain at Southlands into 2020 until the works are completed.
