Thursday, Jul 13, 2017 9:41 am
In collaboration with St John Cymru Wales, Hywel Dda University Health Board (UHB) is pleased to confirm a first aid summer service will return to Tenby for weekends from Saturday 15 July to Sunday 3 September 2017. It will be based at Tenby Hospital and run by a group of skilled individuals who will use their experience of providing first aid at public events to give top quality care. This service will run alongside the new, year-round Nurse Led Walk In Centre opening at Tenby Cottage Hospital on Monday 10 July. The Walk In Centre will be open Monday to Friday (including Bank Holidays) from 10am – 6pm (last patient seen at 5pm). The weekend service will run from Saturday 15 July to Sunday 3 September. The types of injuries that can be treated under this service are: Minor abrasions, superficial cuts and wounds Sprains and strains Eye complaints such as sand in the eye Removal of items from the skin such as a splinter or shell Minor burns including sunburn A triage and treat service will also be offered alongside the summer service in Glen Pharmacy, Tenby and The Pharmacy, Saundersfoot, as part of an existing initiative. Through this service some minor complaints or injuries can be treated successfully in the pharmacy. The pharmacist will look at your injury and make a decision as to whether they can ‘treat’ you there or if you need to seek treatment from another healthcare professional. If the injury is too serious to be treated in the pharmacy you will be given advice about where to go. Community pharmacies are also able to give advice and provide over the counter remedies for common conditions such as coughs, colds, allergic reactions, and emergency contraception.
