Hannage Brook Medical Centre are currently commissioned to provide a limited minor injury service for injuries sustained within the previous 48 hours that are relatively minor and can be dealt with at a GP practice, usually by our Practice Nurses, within our normal opening hours of 8:00am-6:30pm Monday-Friday.
For anything more major the Whitworth Minor Injury Unit or Hospital A&E Department would be more appropriate.
