Changes to the minor injuries service
A minor injury is considered to be a cut, bruise, sting, twisted joint or other minor condition and treatment has in the past been provided in the majority of local GP practices.
However from 1st April 2009 Devon Primary Care Trust has determined that this service will mainly be available from the following venues:
Minor Injuries Units and Walk-in Centres
Devon PCT will now only commission and resource GPs to provide a “minor injuries” service where the practice is more than 10 miles from such a venue.
The nearest minor injuries unit to Chillington Health Centre is at
South Hams Hospital, Kingsbridge
In the event of a life threatening medical emergency call 999 or attend your nearest Accident and Emergency unit
