Minor injuries unit moves to Northampton's hospital

A minor illness and injury unit has moved into the Accident and Emergency department of Northampton's General Hospital.

The move means the unit's opening hours have been extended to 24 hours and patients will have access to diagnostic facilities like X-Ray.

The unit was previously at the Highfield Centre in Cliftonville.

Patients being redirected from A & E with minor issues will not need to travel outside the building.
