PUBLICISED AT THE REQUEST OF YOUR LABOUR COUNCILLORS IN ST ALBANS
OPEN MEETING ST ALBANS AND HARPENDEN PATIENT GROUP (SAPG)
Wednesday 21st March, 7pm at St Albans civic centre
“St Albans Minor Injuries Unit to Urgent Treatment Centre”…speaker Dr Richard Pile.
Have you ever wondered why St Albans has a Minor Injuries Unit,Hemel Hempstead has an Urgent Treatment Centre, and Welwyn has an Urgent Care Centre? For some time SAPG has been campaigning for the Minor Injuries Unit to be upgraded to provide urgent care. Minor injuries units are nurse-led, while an urgent care units are doctor led and have a full range of diagnostic support……so a wider range of problems can be treated.
There is a counter argument that says that because demand for services at the Minor Injuries Unit in St Albans is so low, there is insufficient demand to justify the service being upgraded.
PLEASE FILL IN OUR SURVEY TO ESTABLISH THE FACTS BEFORE THE MEETING ON 21ST MARCH
