It is fantastic that St Georges has a major trauma unit for these sort of cases. Long may that be so. And long may St Helier also keep its A&E so that St Georges can continue to focus on doing its great work without having to take on a burdensome workload. St Helier's A&E sees, on average, 353 patients per day.
