Helipad at Musgrove Park Hospital helps 150 patients

Help

It is a year since the helipad first opened at Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton and, since then, more than 150 patients have used the service.

BBC Points West's Clinton Rogers talks to Nic Monteiro from Musgrove Park Hospital, and Bill Sivewright from the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance, about the life-saving air service.

He also meets Taunton resident Peter Markins, who lives next to Musgrove, and is unhappy about the frequency of helicopters landing at the hospital.
