Treatment is now available at Sleaford Minor Injuries and Minor Illness Service. Minor injuries will be seen any time from 8:00am – 8:00pm, and minor illness when your GP practice is closed.
Sleaford Medical Group provides an urgent care service at weekends and Bank Holidays. In addition they provide a minor injuries service from 8:30am to 8:00pm daily. The unit is based at the Riverside Surgery, Boston Road in Sleaford. This service has been commissioned by Southwest Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group to provide an alternative service for minor injuries rather than having to attend a local Accident and Emergency Unit. The Unit, run by a team of experienced GPs and nurses will be available seven days a week but will be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and Easter Sunday. On arrival, patients are assessed and the injury treated by a trained nurse or doctor as appropriate, however in some cases it may be necessary to refer patients on to further treatment at a hospital.
They will be able to treat a range of conditions including the following; however this list is not exhaustive:
Monday – Friday 6:30pm – 8:00pm
At weekends and public holidays (except Christmas Day, Boxing Day, Easter Sunday): 8:00am – 6.00pm
However, they cannot provide care for serious injuries, major accidents, severe chest pains, serious breathing problems, severe pain of any description (e.g. likely appendicitis), road traffic accidents, anaphylactic reactions or collapse.
The services are available to patients whether or not they are registered with a GP, and can provide care for those not living in Sleaford or the surrounding area. The unit can care for patients attending with both minor illnesses and injuries and is a walk in service. The patients’ own GP will receive a summary of the care received following the consultation so their notes can be updated accordingly. Any patient who cannot be treated will be referred as appropriate.
