Opening times at Pitlochry Minor Injury and illness Unit (MIIU) will be restricted during January and February due to staffing difficulties.
The MIIU will be open through the week, Monday to Friday between 9am to 4.30pm and will remain closed over the weekend.
Perth & Kinross HSCP Chief Officer Robert Packham said, “We would like to apologise for any disruption these changes may cause. We will continue to monitor the staffing situation at the MIIU unit.
“It is essential that we provide an MIIU service with appropriately skilled staff which is safe for patients and staff. Due to staffing difficulties, we have had to make the decision to restrict the opening of the unit for a temporary period.”
Advice on accessing the right treatment in the right place, at the right time:
You can contact your GP between 8am and 6pm Monday to Friday. When your GP surgery is closed, and you’re too ill to wait until it re-opens, you can access appropriate out-of-hours services (including a nurse or GP) through NHS 24 by calling 111.
Your local pharmacist can provide a whole range of services including free advice, support and guidance on all your health problems. Community pharmacies are open at convenient times on Saturdays and Sundays in many locations.
