Patients who aren't registered at Oakham Medical Practice could be refused treatment at the minor injuries unit at Rutland Memorial Hospital from next month because of concerns over a proposed new contract from the East Leicestershire and Rutland Clinical Commissioning Group
Rutland’s minor injuries unit could be forced to turn away patients who are not registered at Oakham Medical Practice.
The service is currently open to anyone and offers treatment for injuries like sprains, cuts, bruises and minor burns at the Rutland Memorial Hospital site in Oakham.
It is run by nursing staff from the surgery but managers fear a proposed change in their contract with the East Leicestershire and Rutland Clinical Commissioning Group will leave them short of cash.
