WITHYBUSH Hospital has made a plea for anyone who has been issued with crutches and is not using them anymore to return them.
The hospital is currently experiencing a shortage of crutches and they can be handed in either at the emergency department at Withybush or to the minor injury units at South Pembrokeshire and Tenby Cottage Hospitals.
David Hawkings, Senior Nurse Manager, Emergency Care, said: “We know that people may have crutches they no longer need hanging around the house which they have just not got around to returning to us.
“Each pair of crutches costs the NHS but they can easily be reused so we are asking people to please return them to us.”
