Grindon Lane minor injury unit closure plan: Consultation starts

People in Sunderland are being asked for their views on health changes which would see a minor injury and illness unit close.

Under the plans, Grindon Lane Primary Care Centre would stay open but lose its minor injury unit.

NHS South of Tyne and Wear is proposing a new 24-hour urgent care centre at Sunderland Royal Hospital along with a minor injury unit in Houghton.

The consultation is open until 30 November.
