Messages for loved ones and keeping in touch

We recognise the impact that a long stay in hospital can have on families and the importance of maintaining strong communication.  Our ward staff are keeping in touch with patients’ next of kin directly and our Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) can help pass on personal messages from family and friends.

During your stay in hospital you will meet a number of different members of staff.  All members of staff wear name badges, but if you are not sure who someone is or what they do, please feel free to ask them to introduce themselves and explain what they do. 

If you have any questions about your treatment, please ask a doctor or a nurse.

There are lots of opportunities for you to get involved with the Trust, from volunteering to attending our public meetings, our Annual General Meeting or our hospital open day which is held every year.

St Mary's Minor Injuries Unit

Last updated: 03 October 2019

We can provide a fast, convenient service for those who have a minor injury or illness.

Our team of multidisciplinary practitioners can offer treatment, advice and information for a range of minor injuries and illnesses. Our waiting times can be considerably less than emergency departments and we work with our local emergency department to help patients make the appropriate choice for the care they need.

If you’re unsure of where to go and require further advice, please call 111. In an emergency, always dial 999.

The majority of patients can be seen and treated by our skilled nurse practitioners and paramedic practitioners. We will assess your clinical need and allocate you to the appropriate clinician.

We treat both adults and children, and we have a separate children’s waiting area with play facilities and children’s TV.

Minor Injuries Units have the facilities to treat minor injuries such as:

  • Cuts and grazes
  • Sprains and strains
  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Bites and stings
  • Infected wounds
  • Minor head injuries
  • Minor eye problems.

 

Opening hours

GPs are on site between 10:00am -2:00pm, and 4:00pm-8:00pm.

Referral information

The unit is open to all NHS patients, no appointments required.
