Waiting rooms set up for patients at airports

Patients travelling off the Island for medical appointments and treatment can now wait in a quiet, comfortable space for their flights.

The Manx Breast Cancer Support Group campaigned for facilities to be made available for patients at Ronaldsway and Liverpool John Lennon Airports.

The charity says patients are often at the mercy of the weather, flight delays and a lack of space on top of medical concerns while travelling to and from the Island for hospital appointments.

Patients are advised to let the airline know at check in so they can be accommodated.
