We are asking people to only attend if they are experiencing severe symptoms or are suffering from a life-threatening condition.

If you or a family member suffers an injury or becomes unwell, please dial 111 in the first instance.

Following a call to 111, they may advise you to contact your GP or its out-of-hours service or attend the Bracknell Minor Injuries Unit in London Road which is open 8am to 8pm, seven days a week.

It is important to note that the minor injury service is only for conditions such as the following:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Suspected broken limbs
  • Minor head injuries
  • Cuts and grazes
  • Bites and stings
  • Minor scalds and burns
  • Skin infections

Anyone with a life-threatening condition should call 999.
