I noticed last week in Dorchester that certain Royal Mail postboxes have a sticker on which says ‘Priority Postbox’ along with ‘NHS’ in blue.

I wondered what this meant for several days anticipating later or more frequent collections at these boxes.

I met a postman the other day who was clearing one of these boxes at the usual time and asked him what Priority Postbox meant. Unhappily he did not know.

Perhaps Royal Mail could tell us what it does mean via this letters page?
