It has been necessary to put measures in place to protect our patients and our practice staff,  including the suspension of appointment booking. Instead patients will be called back by a clinician who will arrange an appointment if necessary. 

For full details click here or select "Coronavirus Info/Links" from the menu on the right. Patients asked to attend an appointment will, where possible, be asked to wait in their car until called into the building by a clinician. 

Minor Injuries

Minor Injuries

Did you know….. Shawbirch Medical Centre can provide care for minor injuries?

Shawbirch Medical Centre is able to care for many minor injuries within the practice, including animal bites, burns, minor head injuries, cuts and wounds, sprains and strains, whiplash and many more!

On rare occasions it may be necessary to refer you onto A&E due to the nature of your injury, but the majority can be managed by the Medical Centre's clinicians.

Please speak to one of the reception team who will be able to book an appointment with an appropriate nurse or doctor. Telephoning is usually better than just attending the surgery with a minor injury as the team can then ensure you get the appropriate treatment.
