Whitchurch’s Minor Injuries Unit will be closed on Christmas Day and Boxing Day, as well as New Year’s Day after its opening hours were announced.

The unit, which normally closes each weekend, will only be open with normal hours (9am until 5pm) on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday before re-opening on January 2.

There will be normal hours across the holidays at Bridgnorth and Ludlow, while Oswestry – the nearest to Whitchurch – will have half-day closures on December 30 and New Year’s Eve.
