Minor Injuries

To avoid patients travelling to the Accident and Emergency department at the Conquest Hospital, the practice has always been prepared to see patients with minor injuries at the surgery during normal opening hours.

The conditions that we are able to treat here are suturing of lacerations, removing foreign bodies, minor burns and head injuries where there has been no loss of consciousness.

This is not an exhaustive list and, if the doctor feels that the injury is not suitable to treat at the surgery, the patient will be referred to Accident and Emergency.
