Driving down A1 my 90-year-old Dad became increasingly uncomfortable and distressed as a result of a blocked urinary catheter. We called at GP unit in Belford who were no help and told me the nearest A&E was Alnwick. Were greated by the nurse at Minor Injuries centre and although it was really outside their normal scope, after consultation she was able to unblock catheter, test urine and arrange for local GP to prescribe antibiotics. Although it took quite a long time (about 2.5h) we were very appreciative of the care and attention afforded by the staff and especially the nurse.
