The Minor Injuries Service, based at Horncastle Medical Group, is there to help with injuries that need attention urgently but are not critical or life threatening – such as:
- sprains, strains, cuts and grazes
- arm, foot and leg injuries
- bites, minor burns and scalds
- minor head injuries
- removal of foreign bodies (excluding from the eyes)
The Minor Injury Service is open to everyone in the area, not just those registered at the practice, and is available to both children and adults. The service is open from 8.00am until 6.30pm from Monday to Friday. You don’t need to make an appointment and you’ll be assessed and treated by our nursing staff in a calm, relaxed setting.
Many A&E departments will pass you on to the nearest minor injuries unit if your condition isn’t serious enough for A&E – so you could save time if you go straight there and perhaps access care closer to home.
