Primary Healthcare Service
Minor Accident Care
Primary care practices offer a range of services and are able to deal with most minor accident care. If they are not able to deal with an injury they will refer on to the appropriate service.
We have a dedicated purpose built accident and treatment theatre for all forms of injury.
We offer fracture stabilisation, assessment and if appropriate, plaster casting by our experienced nursing and medical staff.
We undertake wound care, suturing and dressing management.
Major injuries are cleaned and patient stabilised for transfer to appropriate hospital.
All medical and nursing staff undertake extensive Emergency care courses updated regularly e.g. PRIME.
We work closely with local ambulance and rescue helicopter services.
