Services resumed following a flood which closed the building
Services at Axminster Community Hospital are now back to normal after it was temporarily closed last week due to flooding.
The flooding, from a burst water main pipe, caused some infrastructure damage and affected the hospital’s IT services and electricity supply. As a result, services at the hospital had to be temporarily suspended.
Staff from the Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust and Northern Devon Healthcare Trust, together with partner organisations, worked jointly throughout last week and into this week to fix the problems.
“We would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused to patients during this period of temporary closure and thank all staff for their efforts,” said a spokesman.
