MIU changes

THE MINOR Injuries Unit at Buxton Hospital is to have reduced opening hours for the next few weeks because of staff absence.

The temporary change will mean the unit will be open from 8am to 8pm, closing two hours earlier than usual due to unplanned staff absence. However, recruitment for two vacant posts is currently underway to try and relieve the staffing issues. An updated announcement will be made about the service on June 6.
