Two new ultrasound machines are set to be installed at Noble’s Hospital in the Isle of Man.

The machines will be used in the maternity unit labour ward, the neonatal intensive care unit and at outpatient clinics.

They were bought with a £70,000 donation from the Henry Bloom Noble Trust.

The previous machines served us well but technology has moved on and replacement was overdue. We’re pleased to fund these two top-of-the-range Canon Xario 200G machines, which were carefully chosen by clinicians to meet the demands of the Island’s only acute hospital."

Terry Groves, Chairman of Trustees

A presentation was held at Noble’s Hospital which was attended by the Minister for Health and Social Care, David Ashford.

I would like thank the Henry Bloom Noble Trust and its donors on behalf of patients and staff for their generous donation. The Trust is a staunch and loyal supporter of Noble’s Hospital, always there to support us and unstintingly focused on providing equipment or funding services which will be a positive benefit for patients.”

David Ashford, Minister for Health and Social Care
