Right Arrow Opening times change at Minor Injuries Unit
16 May 2008 at 16:33
From Monday 2nd June the weekday opening times at the Minor Injuries Unit at Ormskirk & District General Hospital will be changing to 8am to 8pm. Weekend and Bank holiday times will remain 9am to 5pm.

The changes have been agreed with both Central Lancashire and Sefton PCTs and are primarily to bring the unit in line with the new Poly Clinics that will soon be opening.

Jayne Norbury, Matron of Emergency Care said, “Since the unit opened nearly three years ago, the use outside of these hours has been minimal. We do not anticipate that there will be any disruption to patient care.”

The Minor Injuries Unit can treat minor cuts or wounds; muscle or joint injuries (such as sprains and strains); possible simple fractures (including x-rays where needed); foreign bodies in eyes and minor burns or scolds.
