Temporary Closure of Tewkesbury Minor Injury and Illness Unit – Updated Friday 8th January 2021

January 8, 2021

The Tewkesbury Hospital Minor Injury and Illness Unit (MIIU) will be closed from 8pm on Sunday 10th January due to operational pressures and the need to direct our resources elsewhere. In addition, our MIIUs at Dilke Memorial Hospital and Vale Community Hospital remain temporarily closed.

The following MIIUs remain open across the county:

Cheltenham General Hospital: 0300 422 3046
North Cotswolds Hospital: 0300 421 8774
Cirencester Hospital: 0300 421 6351
Stroud Hospital: 0300 421 8884
Lydney Hospital: 0300 421 8722

More information, including opening times, can be found here: Minor Injury and Illness Units > Gloucestershire Health and Care NHS Foundation Trust (ghc.nhs.uk

If you have an urgent but non-life-threatening medical need, please use NHS 111 first rather than going straight to A&E. If you do need urgent care, then NHS 111 can now book you in to be seen quickly and safely in A&E. NHS 111 is also able to direct patients to or book an appointment at Urgent Treatment Centres, GP surgeries, pharmacies, emergency dental services and walk-in clinics.
