Minor Emergencies & Procedures
If you find yourself with a minor emergency, but it doesn’t warrant a trip to the Emergency Department our doctors can help. We can also assist with minor procedures such as wound care, cuts & stitches and also skin checks & lesion removal.
Our medical team is always available to treat minor emergencies during our opening hours. Simply give one of our friendly and professional receptionists a call for advice on what to do next. If you feel your situation is very serious or life threatening, go to your closest ED hospital or dial 000 immediately.
Our caring team of GPs, along with our nurse, are well-versed in the treatment and care of all types of wounds, whether chronic or acute. Commonly treated wound-types include pressure sores, ones sustained from acute injury, diabetic and surgical wounds.
Our nurse is on hand to professionally treat, clean and dress wounds. She also teaches both patients and their families how to best care for a wound at home. This education is crucial both to promote healing and to make the patient aware of signs of infection to watch out for.
Cuts & Stitches
If you have a cut that is deep or long, has a foreign object embedded in it, that won’t stop bleeding even after ten minutes of applying pressure, has resulted from a bite or any other object that could potentially cause infection or that is concerning you for any reason, our team is on hand to help. Call our receptionists to make an appointment.
Skin Checks & Lesion Removal
Our GPs are on hand to perform skin checks to spot and act on any anomalies or skin changes early. They may also suggest skin lesion removal and this can be performed in the Centre without having to attend the hospital. Skin lesions are bumps or lumps on your skin such as skin tags, moles, warts or cysts. Most lesions are completely harmless and may not need to be removed. However, you may still wish these to be removed for aesthetic reasons. For advice and peace of mind, contact our receptionist.
