Several members of staff have been suspended at a community hospital in Somerset.

Somerset Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, which runs 14 beds at Dene Barton Community Hospital, said an investigation was being carried out.

It confirmed "a number of staff" in the rehabilitation ward were suspended after a complaint from a patient.

The 39-bed unit provides rehabilitation care for people with diseases, trauma or disorders of the nervous system.

The other beds are run by Musgrove Park Hospital and are not affected by the suspensions.
