Manx Emergency Doctors Service - MEDS

*****MEDS have advised that they are receiving more and more patients that turn up at MEDS Reception, without calling first as per procedure.


Often, these patients are telling MEDS that their GP Reception team have told them that they need to attend MEDS, which they have taken literally rather than calling to be triaged. These patients are sometimes arriving between 5.30 and 6pm, when our staff are only just arriving to set up for MEDS to open at 6pm.


Could we please remind all patients that if a patient needs the utilise MEDS, that they must call 650355 during our operational hours and not just turn up to be seen.***


The Manx Emergency Doctors Service (MEDS) will close between midnight and 8am on Mondays to Fridays from next Monday (08.01.24)

This is for an initial period of 12 weeks (until March 31).

Manx Care said the change is due to 'recent staffing issues' and because of the 'significant reduction in demand during these hours'.

During the eight hour period between midnight and 8am on weekdays from January 8 until March 31, those who need emergency care should call 999 or attend the Emergency Department directly.

For non-emergencies, contact your GP surgery when it opens, visit your local community pharmacy when available, or if appropriate, you get to head to Ramsey to attend the Minor Injuries and Illnesses Unit (MIU) when it opens at 8am.

Between midnight and 8am on weekdays, there will be an on-call GP available to support the Isle of Man Ambulance Service and Hospice Isle of Man, should they require them. 

From mid-January there will be an additional locum GP available during the day, who will provide additional capacity for on-the-day appointments that cannot be accommodated within a patient’s own GP practice.

Each GP Practice will have the ability to allocate a number of additional appointments on the day, which will be offered from a GP practice in Douglas

Over the Counter Medication

otc meds

Patients with minor conditions where the medication is readily available over-the-counter (OTC) in pharmacies or supermarkets will no longer receive prescriptions for those treatments.

Instead they will be advised which treatments or medication to purchase by their GP, Nurse or community pharmacist, as these items are often cheaper to buy directly when compared to the cost of a prescription. 

This will primarily affect medications such as paracetamol, throat lozenges or vitamins, and conditions such as cystitis or dandruff.

Any patients using OTC medications as part of the management or treatment of a more long-term condition will continue to receive it on prescription.

A member of the practice team will make a decision about
whether you can do these yourself, or if it is more appropriate
to involve a parent / guardian.
