CHANGES TO SERVICES AT SOLIHULL HOSPITAL
With the reduction in the demand for hospital beds to treat virus patients, Solihull Hospital is being prepared to concentrate on patients with other conditions requiring surgery. It will continue to treat patients needing to visit these departments:-
Dialysis; Pharmacy; Pathology; Outpatients; Women’s Unit (inc. Birthing Unit); Cardiac Catheterisation Lab; Cardiology Diagnostic Testing; Physiotherapy; Chronic Pain; Dermatology; Rheumatology; Haematology/Oncology; Imaging; Ophthalmology.
As a consequence of the changes, the Minor Injuries Unit has been CLOSED and patients have been advised to:-
“Visit a local pharmacy or 111.nhs.uk or call 111 (free and open 24/7); travel to another local minor injuries unit or walk-in centre; contact their GP; or for more serious issues (including suspected broken bones), travel to Heartlands Hospital or Queen Elizabeth Hospital A&E departments.” See www.nhs.uk for further information.
