Been sent this – please get on board.
Stratton Minor Injuries Unit is open 8 am – 10 pm currently.
Up until December, it was 24 hrs. This wasn’t planned, but three members of staff retired in a relatively short space of time. Recruitment has been incredibly difficult, apparently.
After the meeting on 14th February, which sounded potentially positive, I left my details with Nicky Chopak and also a lady from the NHS.
I hadn’t heard from anyone and after receiving some information regarding the possibility of some nurses interested in working at the MIU, I copied in Peter Le Broy and Mayor Willingham. I have now been contacted by Cllr David Parsons. I had a very interesting conversation with him and he will be meeting with Nicky Chopak this week to discuss patient participation meetings.
I asked him if there was anything I could be doing in the meantime, and we discussed collating peoples experiences of ambulance waiting times, how Stratton MIU helped individuals and also instances of having to travel long distances to a hospital for treatment or appointments.
Not only are we fighting to get the MIU open 24 hrs again, but also fighting for better provisions in our area, and maybe MORE services available in the Bude Stratton area.
If you could, please either send a direct message to this group Saving Stratton MIU or email email@example.com
I will also try and find somewhere in town that people can deliver letters/notes to but will update on that asap.
