Minor injury walk-in service reopens in Bracknell

 

The minor injury service Bracknell Urgent Care Centre has reopened and now accepts walk-in appointments from Monday, 19th July, 2021.

The service is situated at the Urgent Care Centre, London Road, Bracknell, and is available 7 days a week, from 8am-8pm. The service had previously suspended walk-in appointments at the start of the pandemic to reduce the risks of Covid-19 to both patients and staff. Throughout that period a dedicated booking system was introduced with access to the minor injury service via NHS 111, with all appointments being provided based on a patient’s assessed clinical need. 

As well as through 111, the minor injury service now also can be booked via your own GP practice* which will help avoid long waiting times.

It is important to note that the minor injury service is only for conditions such as the following:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Suspected broken limbs
  • Minor head injuries 
  • Cuts and grazes
  • Bites and stings
  • Minor scalds and burns
  • Skin infections

Anyone with a life threatening condition should call 999.

Dr Lalitha Iyer, Medical Director at NHS Frimley Clinical Commissioning Group, said: “We’re delighted that we are now in a position to reopen the minor injury service for both walk-in and booked appointments via their GP.”
