West Dorset MP Chris Loder has shared is delight that action is being taken at Dorset County Hospital in Dorchester.
In a social media post Chris said: “The number of people discharged from Dorset County Hospital into social care has risen roughly threefold in three years.
“It is essential that Dorset receives the boost it needs to get waiting times for ambulances down and hospital beds free when they are most needed.
“I have argued since my election for much closer integration of health and social care, so am pleased to see this working in tandem to ease the burden on our emergency services.”
