Hospitals in Somerset are appealing urgently for drivers of 4x4 vehicles to assist in transporting essential hospital and community health staff today and/or tomorrow.
Taunton’s Musgrove Park Hospital, Yeovil District Hospital and community hospitals in Somerset hope drivers will volunteer to get staff to and from their place of work.
The appeal comes as the health and social care system remains in major incident status due to the severe weather conditions and treacherous state of the roads.
Despite weather warnings being reduced to a Yellow Level 3, medical staff say the snow and icy roads are still making transport difficult.
Drivers who wish to assist can contact the on-call hospital managers:
- Musgrove Park Hospital, Taunton:01823 333444
- Yeovil District Hospital: 01935 475122
