Glossopdale residents with minor ailments can now also access out-of-hours service provided at a walk-in center in New Mills.

The move follows recent changes to health service boundaries, which means there are now even more options for care and treatment.

Walk-in centers treat bumps, bruises, burns, sprains or insect bites – and a range of minor ailments such as coughs, asthma, rashes and other infections.

Based at the New Mills Health Center, the New Mills Walk-In Center is open 6 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. weekends and holidays.

Appointments can be made via 111.nhs.uk or the 111 telephone service, or you can present yourself as a walk-in patient.

Caroline Hannan, Deputy Head of Clinical Services at DHU Healthcare, said, “The after-hours service is an important resource for people in this field, as we are able to provide a wide range of services and advice, face to face. our DHU practitioners.

“We don’t have x-ray facilities and we can’t treat serious injuries, but we can offer you a wide range of services.”

Patients are treated based on the urgency of their needs, so during busy times you may have to wait to be seen.

There are normally two practitioners on duty. This may be a nurse, paramedic or pharmacist. They are supported by a health assistant who will also provide them with support and advice.
