The extended weekday opening hours at Bognor Regis Minor Injuries Unit (MIU) will remain in place for a further two weeks, until Friday 13 August.
The walk-in service, which is located at Bognor Regis War Memorial Hospital, in Shripney Road, will be open from 9am to 7pm, Monday to Friday, until Friday 13 August – two weeks longer than previously announced.
Adults and child patients are being encouraged to access the service, which can help with a range of minor injuries, as an alternative to accident and emergency (A&E).
Residents and visitors, including holidaymakers at Butlin’s and the area’s caravan parks, are encouraged to use the MIU if they have the following conditions:
Patients are advised that the MIU does not treat people with chest pain, long-term joint or back pain (most injuries over two weeks’ old are not appropriate for MIU), sore throats, earaches, chest infections and urinary tract infections, rashes, sexual health problems, abdominal pain, post-operative problems, re-dressings, including leg ulcer dressings, and abscesses.
Bognor Regis MIU is a walk-in centre and its normal opening hours are 9am to 5pm on Monday to Friday.
