PATIENTS in need of rehabilitation at Crewkerne Community Hospital can now receive their treatment in a sparkling new department.

The refurbishment has created a separate rehabilitation space for inpatients so that they can concentrate on their care rather than worry about who may see them in their night clothes.

Outpatients now have their own entrance to the unit, separate to the inpatient unit, but next door so staff can still access both as easily as before.

The building was made possible thanks to a £175,000 donation by Crewkerne League of Friends.
