A hospital's minor injuries unit is now open seven days a week.

Chard Community Hospital's minor injuries unit (MIU) is open daily from 08:00 BST until 21:00 BST.

Previously, the unit was closed on Wednesdays and Fridays.

It follows the successful recruitment of two additional emergency nurse practitioners, meaning a safe and consistent service can be provided to patients requiring MIU treatment every day.

The nurse practitioners run the MIUs and specialise in community urgent care, so can independently manage a wide range of injuries and acute illness.
