Recommended Posts

 

Christ, Woolley, that brought a lump to the throat ..!

I'd get that looked at.

 

At RCH I hope.

I got caught out by the parking situation at Nobles the other day, main car park full, as well as most of the roadways, the oveflow car park by the footy club full (2 laps of both of those), next overflow park beyond the helipads full, ended up on the side of the road past Palatine clinic.

 

I can't believe there were that many people visiting the hospital and people blame 'park & ride' for the over capacity, I think it could do with a few go-pro cams strategically placed or a drone to observe where the occupants go after they leave their vehicles in the morning, whether they get on the bus or other vehicles and depart, or actually enter the building

 

Unless something is done about it I fear they will take the easy way out and start charging for parking crying.gif

A contributor on the IOM Newspapers website thread beneath the story reporting the departure of Mr. Corlett from DED makes this observation:

 

"Also, we haven't heard why Millie Bello, the cancer surgeon, left the Island and is now working in Arabia. There was such a big fuss about getting her here".

 

I was astonished to read this. Is it true? This lady was apparently a beacon of hope and clinical excellence for women diagnosed with breast cancer and was a figurehead in local fundraising for improved facilities. If she really has left, when did this occur? Given her profile when practicing here why the (apparent) news blackout of her departure? Or have I missed it? When other valued medics have left or retired there has often been media coverage of a "thank you, goodbye and good luck" nature. Why not in this case? This lady was arguably the most high-profile doctor at Noble's for years and yet seems to have left with scarcely a ripple. I'm mystified. As a parallel matter, has she been replaced? And by whom?

According to her website and LinkedIn she's still on the island.

don't think there was a blackout,was there an issue in the past in supposedly being a general surgeon where she wanted to be specialist only ?

I think that was the lady who preceded Miss Bello.

I didn't think she was full time here in any case.

I had thought she was. The profile accorded to her suggested so, but perhaps I'm wrong.

I wouldn't put too much store on someone who claims she's gone to "Arabia".

She resigned as a consultant at Noble's some time over the summer, and her last working day after the requisite notice period was sometime in September, if I recall correctly. She was a full-time consultant here, but had family in the UK so travelled frequently at weekends. Her post has been filled by a locum, while steps are taken to recruit a permanent replacement. I don't know where she's working now, although I had heard rumours of the middle east. I'm pretty sure she's not still on island even though her aesthetic private practice website is still active.

 

There's been no news blackout as far as I'm aware. Perhaps our local press thought that the resignation of a government employee wasn't worthy of reporting.

Thank you for that comprehensive clarification. Given the significant profile that the lady had, including with local cancer charities, and her figurehead/leadership of the (successful) fundraising drive for a dedicated breast unit, I find it really very odd that she departs these shores with no acknowledgement/recognition or public comment. Very odd.

For further clarification there was a small piece in the paper - they wanted to do a larger article but she declined as she didn't want the fuss. It was also on the Manx breast cancer support group FB page.

Local news are only good to report what the government want to say for us to hear.

Especially Manx Radio.
