Review could see Yate Minor Injuries Unit upgraded
An NHS review of urgent care provision could see Yate’s MIU upgraded to an Urgent Treatment Centre with a wider range of services.
South Gloucestershire’s Clinical Commissioning Group is currently examining how urgent care is delivered across the area.
It’s hoped that Yate Minor Injuries Unit could offer a full walk in service for minor ailments as well as minor injuries.
Lib Dem Heath Spokesperson, Cllr Sue Hope, said: “I asked the CCG’s South Gloucestershire Director, David Jarrett, whether Yate Heath Centre was in line to be upgraded to an Urgent Treatment Centre. His response was that local health managers are currently considering locations but that no decisions have yet been made. We will continue to lobby for Yate to be upgraded.”
