MIU - Have Your Say!

At a recent virtual meeting of Trustees, Jill Warburton, Vice-Chair of the Friends of the Yeatman Hospital and Sherborne Town Councillor, introduced a discussion on the re-opened Minor Injuries Unit at the Yeatman Hospital by asking if it was fit for purpose?

“Earlier this year, the Friends of the Yeatman Hospital supported the campaign led by local MP Chris Loder to re-open the Minor Injuries Unit (MIU) at the Yeatman Hospital.

“This was achieved last June but with a twist…. you now have to make an appointment before you can attend……. We are concerned this might defeat the purpose of the NHS charter – healthcare when needed – not by appointment only. 

“The Friends of the Yeatman Hospital is preparing a submission to Dorset Healthcare University Trust to challenge this decision. To do so we need facts based on real life experiences and we would like to receive your views. So, to be very clear, this about your MIU experience, not staff performance.

“If you have had to use the “appointment-only-injury” service at the Yeatman Hospital since it reopened we would like to hear about your experience – positive or negative.
