Hello and welcome. I am Dr B and would like to help you.
In this case, as this rabbit is suffering, we'd want to have it seen urgently. Therefore you can take it directly to your local emergency vet ( ie Vets Now) or you can ring your local vet practice ( as practices in our country are required to offer out of hours care). They will be able to assess the damage and his prognosis. If he is wild, euthanasia may be indicated but otherwise they can get this wee one into rabbit safe pain relief (as human ones are toxic) and take him for care.
Please take care,
Dr. B
