Hywel Dda University Health Board has decided to temporarily close the Minor Injuries Unit (MIU) in Cardigan in order to “redeploy clinical staff to support the COVID 19 response within Ceredigion”.
The MIU, which is based in Cardigan Integrated Care Centre, and normally operates from Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm, will temporarily close with immediate effect. A Hywel Dda spokesperson said “the situation will be under constant review” and normal service will be resumed when it is considered “safe and appropriate to do so”.
Minor injuries help and advice is available as follows:
- visit the 111 symptom checker (https://111.wales.nhs.uk/)
- visit your local pharmacy
- call 111
– It is strongly advised not to self-present to the GP reception in Cardigan Integrated Care Centre as they do not deal with minor injuries.
- for emergency care you are advised to use the A+E departments at Glangwili, Bronglais and Withybush Hospital.
