Minor Injury Service

Willesborough Health Centre now offers a minor injury service from 8.00am to 6.30pm Monday to Friday. A doctor will assess your injury and decide whether you can be treated at the Practice or need to go to A&E. Where your injury is considered appropriate to be treated at the Practice you can avoid long delays at A&E by using this service. You are advised to call us on 01233 621 626 before coming to the surgery but you will be asked to come in to be assessed by a doctor.

This service is available to patients from any Practice and not just those currently registered with us.
