Some outpatient services will resume following the flood which closed the building

Some outpatient services are due to resume at Axminster hospital tomorrow (Monday, October 10) following last week’s burst water main which closed the building.

Officials say they hope to have the x-ray and ultrasound units will be back up and running.

A spokeswoman added; “Unfortunately as telephony is still not operational the day-case unit and therefore theatre sessions and linked clinics remain closed.

“However lists have been provided at Sidmouth Hospital for Monday.

“We are grateful for the patience of the public and staff while we continue to work hard to fully reopen Axminster Hospital.”
