Phone-First Policy For Shaftesbury Hospital As Dorset’s Minor Injuries Units Reopen

All of the local NHS Minor Injuries Units will reopen on Monday the 21st of June.

Throughout the pandemic, Blandford and Sherborne hospital patients were rerouted to Shaftesbury and other local hospitals. There won’t be a return to the previous arrangement when you could walk up to the Westminster Memorial Hospital with a minor injury and be seen, as Sarah Bunt reports.

If you’re new to our area, you may be unaware of the conditions and injuries Shaftesbury hospital staff can treat. Listen to our report for details.
