Minor Injuries Unit

If your injury is not serious you can get help from a Minor Injuries Unit (MIU) rather than going to an Emergency Department (ED). This will allow the ED staff to concentrate on people with serious, life-threatening conditions and will save you a potentially long wait.

 Locally there are Minor Injuries Units at:

Minor Injuries Units have the facilities to treat minor injuries such as:

  • Cuts and grazes
  • Sprains and strains
  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Bites and stings
  • Infected wounds
  • Minor head injuries
  • Minor eye problems.

Experienced NHS nurses are on hand to treat a range of minor injuries and x-ray facilities are available at these units.
