A consultation process on the future of the minor injuries unit in Armagh will end next Friday, September 11.

The unit at Tower Hill was temporarily closed in November 2014, and a consultation launched the following May to give the public the opportunity to voice their opinions on its long-term future.

The temporary closure will remain in place until a final decision on the future of the service is made following the consultation.

All other services based on the Tower Hill site including outpatient clinics, radiology and GP out of hours remain open and continue to operate as

normal.
