Henry Bloom Noble Healthcare Trust facilitates provision of student accommodation

Fri, 15 Dec 2023

The Manx Care Medical Education Department hosted the Henry Bloom Noble Healthcare Trust (HBNHT) for the official opening of a new medical student accommodation facility.

To help accommodate the new students, the HBNHT has enabled a property in Douglas to be used as student housing.

Co-ordinator for Medical Undergraduates and Specialty and Specialist Doctors, Mark Roberts, said: “It is wonderful that we have been able to expand our Medical Education placements and we are extremely grateful to HBNHT for stepping in and finding a property specifically for this purpose.

"Over the last few years, we have achieved some of the highest results in the National Trainee Survey (NTS) from the General Medical Council (GMC), for the provision of medical education to Junior Doctors, and therefore Noble’s is an extremely desirable placement. Having the facilities to host more undergraduates is integral to building our own sustainable workforce on-Island.”

Noble’s Hospital is an education provider for six medical schools across the UK, meaning that students from these schools can carry out their placements on the Island. Noble’s has increased its capacity for medical spaces to aid the NHS Long Term Workforce Plan expansion.
