We offer a minor injury service during our normal opening hours. This applies to both adults and children.
If you have suffered a minor injury please call the practice for advice first is possible. An appointment will be made for you if appropriate.
The service is for less serious injuries such as;
- minor burns and scalds
- eye injury
- foreign bodies
- stitching of small wounds
- Minor head injuries
You can also go to your nearest Minor Injury Unit. Minor Injury Units (MIUs) are for less serious injuries. No appointment is needed, and they usually offer much shorter waiting times than the main emergency departments that have to prioritise the most seriously injured patients.
If you have more serious injuries, severed limbs, broken bones or are bleeding heavily you should go to your nearest Emergency Department (ED) immediately.
