Harwich Minor Injuries Unit

Please see below for a statement received by Harwich Town Council in relation to the Minor Injuries Unit at Harwich Hospital:

 

The Urgent Treatment Service at Fryatt Hospital, Harwich, is a nurse-led service which is open

between 9am and 5pm every day including weekends and public holidays, for assessment and

treatment of minor injuries such as:

wounds

sprains

strains

minor dislocations

suspected fractures

removal of foreign bodies

burns and scalds

bites and stings

minor head injuries

Please note that in busy periods, in order to ensure that we maintain safe infection control

requirements, you may be given an appointment to return later in the day, if your injury does not

require immediate treatment.

For any emergency needing urgent or immediate treatment, such as chest pain, severe

uncontrolled pain or bleeding, acute shortness of breath or severe injury, you should call 999 or go

to the nearest Emergency Department. For residents of Harwich, this is located at Colchester

Hospital.
