As of 12pm today, the urgent care centres at Warren Farm in Kingstanding and Washwood Heath have closed due to staffing shortages because of the snow. Currently, we expect them to re-open tomorrow as usual. Please call #NHS111 for urgent medical advice.
Councillors from the Health and Adult Social Care Scrutiny Board visited Solihull Hospital on Friday 3 November. They met staff from Minor Injuries Unit (MIU) and the Urgent Primary Care Centre to get an understanding of how the departments are benefiting Solihull patients and they were given a guided tour around the main reception area for Urgent Primary Care and Booked Primary Care. The MIU is a 24 hour service for people who suffer a minor injury and the Urgent Primary Care service runs from 8am to 8pm seven days a week, to see and treat patients with a minor illness.
