Offshore Healthcare?

Establish a relationship with a UK NHS Trust to incorporate Nobles and Ramsey CH thus solving the agency staff costs and issues and create inter-trust transactions instead of full cost referrals. This doesn’t have to be a merger or a take-over but a strategic alliance to widen staff experiences and improve services.

In addition, the Island could specialise in a couple of procedures that could be offered privately, for example cataracts, and offer a package for the patient and their partner to come to the Island, have the operation and ‘see the sights’.

Why the contribution is important

As medicine gets more complex and demand continues to grow, IOM Health Services cannot do it on their own unless they want to end up with reduced services for Island residents.

Continuing to think within the existing care paradigms is unlikely to bring about major changes that are needed for the future

    The Island currently cannot cater to ever healthcare need and that is a problem, our current relationship with the NHS leads to slow responses and a declining quality of life for healthcare seekers. Whilst we should be working on building our own healthcare system to negate the need for the NHS services for more common problems, there will always be some infrastructure or training we lack that the NHS may have and nobody should suffer longer if that's the case.
