Wisbech’s Minor Injury Unit has reopened following months of closure due to the covid-19 pandemic.

The town’s MIU - which is located at North Cambs Hospital - reopened on Monday August 17, with its opening hours being 8.30am to 6pm five days a week Monday to Friday.

X-ray services are also be available from 9am to 5pm on those days.

Dr Gary Howsam, chairman of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), said: “The NHS is working hard to restart services that were temporarily closed or paused during the response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Whilst COVID-19 has not gone away, it is important to reopen as many services as we can to support the health and wellbeing of our local community.”
