Minor Injuries Units are for injuries, such as deep cuts, eye injuries, broken bones, severe sprains, minor head injury, minor burns and scalds.

Many people go to Accident and Emergency departments when they could be treated just as well and probably quicker at a Minor Injuries Unit.

In Accident and Emergency staff must give priority to serious and life-threatening conditions, so if you go there with a minor injury you may have to wait longer to be seen. It is better to go to a Minor Injuries Unit if there is one locally.

You don’t need an appointment to visit a Minor Injuries Unit. They are run by a team of highly qualified nurse practitioners with a lot of experience and expertise in the treatment of minor injuries.

Minor Injuries Units can treat a wide variety of problems including cuts and grazes, sprains and strains, broken bones (fractures), bites and stings (including problems: minor eye infections, scratches or something stuck in your eye).
