Minor injuries unit

    To take the pressure off the NHS we are advised to go to a minor injuries unit. This is a great idea for non-life threatening accidents but the nearest is Oswestry, which is also in England! It’s also not accessible to some people without transport.

    Surely Wrexham should have their own minor injuries unit?
    The old tax offices Ellice Way, across the road from the Ramada Hotel are empty and up for sale. The buildings are large and there are large car parks attached – it seems the perfect location for a unit. It would be close to the Maelor Hospital too if someone needed more specialised treatments.

    Even if just temporary this could ease some of the pressure on the Maelor hospital. The out of hours GP service could also be situated here.

    There’s probably even enough room for a minor illness or injury ward!

    I know money is key here but look at how much has been wasted on the Nightingale hospitals!

    What does everyone think?

    There used to be one in Chirk covering the County. It was a godsend. It’s ridiculous that we don’t have one, and even more ridiculous that we have to travel to Oswestry to use one.



    janeywxm, a good post but that is to easy Wrexham don’t do easy
