At The Practice we can deal with some minor injuries but you may want to consider attending a minor injuries unit so that you can be seen quickly and have appropriate investigations (such as X-rays) for your injury rather than wait in A&E. If you are unsure what to do then please let our Patient Navigators know what your problem is so they can advise you on the most suitable and timely assessment for your injury.
