Burnham's War Memorial HospitalBurnham-On-Sea hospital has this week re-opened to new patients after an outbreak of Norovirus was brought under control. first broke the news in February that the sickness bug had shut the main ward at the hospital in Love Lane.

The hospital put in place additional cleaning and infection control measures in an attempt to stamp out the sickness bug and was this week given the 'all clear' to re-open for new patient admissions.
