Lib Dem campaigners have welcomed news that X-ray services will be available at Yate Minor Injury Unit (MIU) during weekends and Bank Holidays from later this month.
Lib Dem Parliamentary Candidate for Thornbury and Yate Claire Young said:
"When it was announced that the MIU would be open 8am to 8pm seven days a week from April, we challenged health chiefs about the lack of X-ray services at weekends. We kept pushing and are delighted that they have now agreed to offer X-rays on weekends and Bank Holidays during the busier periods of the day from later this month."
Cllr Ruth Davis (Lib Dem, Yate Central) said:
"We've long argued that weekends are some of the busiest times for minor injuries, especially for people playing sport. It's great news for people in the Yate area that they will now be able to get an X-ray at the weekend."
