"Delivering the right care to the right people at the right time"

Minor Injuries Service

Unfortunately, many people attend A & E with minor problems or injuries and can wait up to 4 hours to be seen. Attending a local Minor Injuries Unit can reduce the waiting time and provide the same service locally.

As from the 1 April 2016 (this service is a pilot which is expected to run for 24 months)

Our surgery will provide a Minor Injuries Service for injuries including:

  • sprains and strains
  • cuts and grazes
  • suspected minor fractures
  • minor burns and scalds
  • bites
  • minor eye injuries
  • minor head injuries

Please note that we do not have x ray facilities on site and suspected fractures will be referred to Yate or Southmead.

The nurses in this surgery will be trained in treating a range of minor injuries. The service will be available during normal GP surgery opening times on a walk-in basis.

If you suffer a minor injury outside normal GP opening hours ring NHS 111 for advice.

Calls to 111 are free from any landline or mobile.
