Minor Injuries Units are for patients with less serious injuries, such as sprains, cuts and grazes. The waiting times are usually much shorter than those in A&E, as staff must give priority to serious and life-threatening conditions. You do not need an appointment to visit a Minor Injuries Unit. Minor Injuries Units are led by highly qualified nurse practitioners with more experience and expertise than many doctors in this kind of treatment.

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Heavy blood loss
  • Suspected broken bones
  • Persistent chest pain
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Overdose, ingestion or poisoning

Remember to keep calm, do everything you can to help the person, but don't put yourself in danger and don't give the person anything to eat, drink or smoke unless advised to do so by qualified medical personnel..
