Been to injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault? Make your injury claim in Skenfrith today!
Accidents seem to occur when we least expect them to. The injuries that result from an accident can be serious enough that the victim needs to attend an Accident and Emergency department at a local hospital, to receive assessment and treatment for their injuries, which can be life threatening.
The Accident and Emergency Department should only be attended if:
- there is a loss of consciousness
- the patient is in an acute confused state or is suffering from a fit that is not stopping
- the patient has persistent and severe chest pain
- there are breathing difficulties
- there is severe bleeding which cannot be stopped
The Accident and Emergency departments at most major hospitals are usually open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. They are staffed by nurses and doctors who are specially trained to assess and treat injuries.
Minor Injury Units
A minor injury unit (MIU) is usually located in smaller hospitals where less severe injuries are treated. Sprains and minor injuries are treated and assessed by nursing staff and a local doctor may be in attendance.
Here, advice and assessment are given without the need for an appointment and if the injury is severe, you may be referred on to a larger hospital with an accident and emergency department for further treatment.
Out of hours service
If you are unwell during the night or during the weekend when your doctor’s surgery is closed, then you can contact the out of hours service through your surgery. You may be asked to attend the local hospital or clinic to see a doctor who is on call to receive treatment. Similarly for out of hours dental treatment, your local surgery will have an answer machine message giving you further instructions about receiving treatment when the surgery is closed.
