Minor Injuries Units and First Aid Units
If you need advice or treatment for minor injuries or illnesses quickly, then a Minor Injuries Unit (MIU) or First Aid Unit (FAU) could help you. You can get treatment at a MIU for things such as
- Deep cuts
- Eye injuries
- Broken bones
- Severe sprains
- Minor head injuries
- Minor burns or scalds
- Minor sports injuries
You will probably be seen quicker at a MIU than at A&E where they give priority to serious and life-threatening conditions. You can drop in and be seen by highly qualified nurse practitioners, experienced in treating minor injuries.
Please note that First Aid Units do not have X-Ray support so it is best to call prior to attending if you are concerned that an X-Ray may be required.
