An emergency extension of the minor injury service at Spalding’s Johnson Hospital to take in minor illnesses will end on Friday.
Ginny Blackoe, general manager for the South Business Unit at Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust, who run the minor injuries unit at Johnson Community Hospital, said: “The extension of the minor injury service to cover minor illnesses to ease the 2014/15 winter pressures is coming to an end this week.
The provision of an illness service from the Johnson Hospital site was a temporary measure during the winter pressure period
“The illness service will be ending on Friday but the service to patients with minor injuries from the unit will continue as normal.
“The provision of an illness service from the Johnson Hospital site was a temporary measure during the winter pressure period. Please be advised that the minor injury service and out of hours service for Saturday and Sunday and Bank Holidays will run as normal.
“Please do not forget that if you have a minor illness or injury you can still ring the 111 service and visit your local pharmacist for advice and information.”
