Management of Minor Injury

If you have a minor injury which you cannot treat yourself or you are worried about e.g. a small cut or burn, a minor sprained joint, bruising, something stuck in your skin etc. then you can be seen at the Health Centre. Make an appointment in the usual way.

If the injury needs hospital care we will see you as soon as possible and provide treatment that will allow you to get to the hospital.

If your injury is severe e.g. if you could have broken a bone, you are losing a lot of blood or you had a head injury which caused you to lose consciousnessis You should go straight to the A&E Dept. at Daisy Hill Hospital or Craigavon Area Hospital.

Many common aches and pains can be treated simply at home without the need to consult a doctor.
