Minor Injury Services

Greleydale Healthcare Centre are currently commissioned to provide a limited minor injury service for injuries sustained within the previous 48 hours that are relatively minor and can be dealt with at a GP practice, usually by our practice nurses, within our normal opening hours of 08:00 – 18:30 Monday-Friday.

For anything more major the Hospital A&E Department would be more appropriate.

Examples of minor injuries that can often be dealt with at the surgery are:

  • Lacerations capable of closure by simple techniques
  • Severe bruising requiring assessment
  • Recent injury beyond simple domestic first aid or where stitches may be required
  • Blows to the head where there has been no loss of consciousness

Minor Surgery and Joint Injections

Certain minor operations can be performed at the surgery. For example some of our clinicians carry out minor operations such as the removal of minor skin lesions and joint injections, avoiding the need for you to go to hospital.

If the clinician recommends this sort of treatment then arrangements will be made at the surgery.

All these patients have an annual health check done by the nursing team with input from a clinician as required.
