Services available include:

• General practitioner and dental services
• Community healthcare
• Hospital healthcare
• Mental healthcare
• Social services for adults and for children and families
• Specialist off-Island care.

Residents benefit from a £112 million state-of-the-art Noble's Hospital and there are also options for private healthcare.

For those families with children the Isle of Man has an excellent education system with incredibly high standards of teaching and a strong appetite for sports and culture. Content mirrors the English national curriculum but also draws on the Island's unique geographical, cultural and historical features.

There is no state run pre-school on the Isle of Man, but there are many privately run options to choose from.

Children start school in the academic year in which they turn five-years-old. The school year starts in September and runs until late July with holidays at Christmas and Easter and half-term breaks in the autumn and Spring. There are 32 state primary and five secondary schools that work on a catchment system with children expected to attend the school designated to the catchment area in which they live. Parents get in touch with a school directly to enrol.

The Island has two highly regarded independent public schools. The Buchan School is the junior to King William's College and consists of three parts (Nursery, Pre-Prep and Prep) with small class sizes for children aged 1-11. King William's College is a boarding and day school for girls and boys aged 11-18 and is rated as one of the best International Baccalaureate schools in the UK.

There are also options for higher education on the Island at the University College Isle of Man. It has partnered with the University of Chester and offers degrees in a range of areas including the arts, business and computer science. It also offers vocational training and apprenticeships centred on practical skills, including health and social care, engineering, plumbing and supervisory skills.
