Seafront Nurses

26 July 2010
’s seafront nurses on hand for holidaymakers

People visiting Scarborough this summer will be able to get medical attention from nurses stationed on the seafront should they need it.

A team of seven nurses drawn from local NHS services will be taking it in turns to man a station at Scarborough’s West Pier from 10am until 5pm, seven days a week during the school summer holiday period (26 July to 3 September 2010).

They will be on hand to examine and treat people for minor injuries (such as cuts, sprains, sunburn etc.) or refer them onto more appropriate services, such as Scarborough’s GP drop in service Castle Health Centre, or Scarborough Hospital for more serious problems.

Note: For this one we were commissioned by Nursing Times.
