Minor Injury Services

At The Red House Surgery, we are equipped to treat patients with a minor injury as an alternative to visiting A&E. The following list gives guidance on the types of injuries we are able to treat at the surgery:

  • Cuts or Lacerations
  • Bruises
  • Minor Dislocations
  • Foreign Bodies
  • Minor Head Injury
  • Eye Injury
  • Burns and Scalds
  • Minor Trauma to Body including hands/limbs/feet
  • Bites
  • Falls
  • Whiplash/RTA injuries

It is more appropriate to be seen at the surgery for the types of injuries listed above than it would be to present to A&E. We also have much shorter waiting times than A&E.
