It was all hands to the deck for the opening of the new GP and Minor Injuries Centre at Stirling Health and Care Village. The week before the move, staff were busy packing and unpacking multiple boxes. Items being shifted included a van full of crutches, oxygen and Entonox cylinders, plus emergency equipment and dressings.

Helping set up rooms were Emergency Nurse Practitioner Deborah Whyte (left) and Nursing Assistant Kim Forrester (right) who were joined for the day by Emergency Department Senior Charge Nurse Glynis Fotheringham.

The Centre was given the thumbs up by some of the first patients. Comments included that it was a big difference from the previous area, a good thing to have something new back in Stirling, far superior to the previous Minor Injuries Unit and much easier to access.
