ALL outpatient appointments at Taunton's Musgrove Park Hospital will go ahead as normal today (Monday).

Health bosses are urging people to attend their appointments as normal "if it is safe to travel".

A spokesman said: " If you're unable to make it, please let us know by ringing the number on your appointment letter.

"As per usual, we will contact any patients whose appointments or routine surgery may need to be cancelled."

He praised staff who had "gone above and beyond what could be expected" during the snow to enable Musgrove to continue to run safe healthcare.

He added: "We also want to repeat our message to people to keep warm and well and only travel if it’s absolutely necessary.

"Please remember to think about your friends and neighbours who may be in need of support during these difficult weather conditions."
