Could we please ask all patients with minor injuries to call the practice, do not just turn up.
We have recently had a number of people turn up with injuries that we are not able to treat and the patients had to go to A&E. Coming into the practice first will not get you seen any quicker in A&E.
Deep lacerations will reuqire an A&E vist and can not be treated at the practice.
When you call the practice your injury will be triaged by a doctor or nurse and if appropriate you will be asked to come into the practice and you will be treated. During busy times you may be asked to wait to be seen.
