Healthcare on the island
Healthcare on the island falls under the Isle of Man National Health Service and carries no charge with the exception of some dentistry treatments and prescriptions generally.
There is also no National Health Surcharge, an annual amount payable per person when arriving from overseas, unlike the UK.
There are 14 GP surgeries across the island with around 1900 patients per surgery. Registering for a GP has to be within a catchment area closest to home.
There are 2 hospitals, the main hospital being the state of the art Nobles Hospital located just outside of Douglas. If required patients can be referred to specialist health care centres in the North West of England and this is also covered under the National Health Service.
Paramedic services are included within the National Health Service.
