More than 30 people have asked for details about three new job vacancies at the Wells Community Hospital.

The hospital is recruiting its first three members of staff - a matron, volunteer

co-ordinator and senior healthcare assistant - since being taken over by a local charitable trust.

Hospital trustee Peter Rainsford described the interest being shown as a “strong response”.

The hospital, which was once threatened with closure but was saved after a determined EDP-backed campaign, is gradually beginning to develop its services.

Outpatient clinics are now being run and the long-term plan is to provide more than 20 new beds by 2008.
