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.

What is a Minor Injury?

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
