£2.9million expansion for Musgrove Park Hospital's A&E unit
9:00am Thursday 19th December 2013 in News
Four new treatment bays go live today (December 19) to enable staff to treat critically ill or seriously injured people, along with three ambulance handover bays and an additional resuscitation facility to deal with trauma patients.
Consultant Dr Jon Tipping said: “The new facilities mean we’re now better equipped to treat the increasing numbers of seriously ill or injured people we’re seeing.
“The numbers of people visiting our emergency department has been rapidly increasing over the years, and so the additional treatment bays will really help us to cope with demand.”
And the League of Friends have donated £422,000 for new equipment.
