Have your say

A MINOR injury unit will be temporarily closed while emergency electricity repairs are carried out.

The centre at Gosport War Memorial Hospital in Bury Road, will be shut from 9pm on Tuesday, February 21 until 8am on Thursday, February 23.

The closure is so electricity supplier SSE can carry out emergency repairs.

A spokeswoman from Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust said: ‘Patients are advised to contact their GP, NHS 111 or use the treatment centre at St Mary’s Community Health Campus if they have a minor injury or illness during this time.

‘The St Mary’s Treatment Centre is open from 7.30am until 10pm on weekdays.

‘No appointment is required.

‘We apologise for any inconvenience.’

They added if someone falls seriously ill (such as chest pain, shortness of breath or severe abdominal pain) they should call the emergency services on 999.

The St Mary’s Community Health Campus is on Milton Road in Portsmouth and can be called on 0333 200 1822.
