MPFT Leek Moorlands Hospital service update

Midlands Partnership Foundation Trust service update 3 April 2020

The Minor Injuries Unit is temporarily closed. The decision has been taken by the Trust in response to severe staffing shortages and low levels of attendance at the unit.

Opening hours at the Haywood Hospital Walk-in Centre have been extended to 7am – 9.30pm every day (previously open from 9am on weekends) following the temporary closure of the Minor Injuries Unit at Leek Moorlands Hospital.

The Emergency Department at Royal Stoke University Hospital will not be treating minor injuries in adults or children until further notice, in order to free up vital resources. During this time Haywood Hospital’s Walk-in Centre will be able to provide these essential services to the local community. Orthopaedic surgeons and emergency nurse practitioners from Royal Stoke are joining the Haywood team to provide an enhanced service
