Minor Injury Unit (MIU)
The MIU is open from 8:00 - 20:00 Monday - Friday
We also open the MIU on some Saturdays during the school Summer Holidays and on Bank Holidays (please ring in advance to check our opening hours)
Anybody can drop-in with minor injuries at any time during these hours. You don't have to be a registered patient at the surgery.
(Non-injury related problems will require a pre-booked appointment and you should contact the surgery in advance).
The service allows anyone with a variety of injury conditions to gain immediate advice and treatment from our skilled team of Primary Care Practitioners (Nurse Practitioners & Paramedics), supported by a Duty Doctor.

The list of potential conditions is wide but includes:
- Cuts, lacerations and abrasions
- Infections following an injury
- Removal of foreign bodies
- Bites (both animal and human)
- Sporting injury
- Lower back pain due to strain/injury
Always ring 999 in an emergency
