The date that the Minor Injuries Unit in Yate will extend its opening hours has finally been revealed.

From Monday, April 15 the centre will be open for 12 hours a day, seven days a week.

The facility, currently ran by Sirona care & health will now be open from 8am - 8pm on weekdays and also on weekends.

This will include bank holidays.

X-ray services provided by North Bristol NHS Trust will also be available seven days a week, initially for a slightly shorter day covering busier periods.

Individuals will also be able to attend the unit for a GP-referred X-ray on Saturdays or Sundays.

The news that the centre was planning this change first broke in January after calls from the public.
