Changes to health services in Erewash will see a new GP service and Ilkeston Community Hospital’s minor injuries unit closed overnight.

NHS Erewash Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) says the plans will ease the strain on A&E and will mean patients have greater access to a GP, with services available from 4pm to 8pm on weekdays and potentially 8am to 8pm at weekends, depending on demand.

A new model of care will be piloted in October, which would result in a new GP service in the early evening and weekends and the minor injuries unit (MIU) being open between 8am and 10pm with the opening hours reducing from October.
