Call for feedback on minor injuries service
Published on: 24 Feb 2017
HAVE you used the minor injuries service at your GP surgery?
All practices in South Gloucestershire now offer the service on weekdays for registered patients.
The watchdog Healthwatch South Gloucestershire wants to hear from residents who have used the service through their GP rather than attending A&E at hospital.
A spokesman said: “We would also like to hear from residents in general regarding your views as to whether this is a good alternative to attending A&E or indeed if you are aware that this service exists.”
Outside office hours, the advice remains to call NHS 111 for advice. Calls are free and the service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
If you experience a major injury or illness, such as severe breathlessness, abdominal pain, chest pain, major broken bones or stroke, you should call 999.
