Buxton Hospital’s Minor Injuries Unit is to resume its normal opening hours from later this month.

Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Trust has announced that, from Monday August 22, the unit will be open daily from 8am-10pm.

It had been closing two hours earlier than usual because of unplanned staff absence.

Anna Baker, General Manager for Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Trust, said: “We are delighted that the unit will resume its regular opening hours from August 22.

“Our nurse-led Minor Injuries Unit provides specialist treatment and consultations with experienced NHS nurses.

“Treatments include minor infections and rashes, minor injuries and illnesses, strains and sprains, superficial cuts and bruises, abrasions, bites and stings, dressings and minor burns.”
