For minor injuries such as cuts that need stitches, broken bones, sprains and minor burns, go to one of our Minor Injury Units (MIU). You are likely to get treated faster for these injuries here as you will not have to wait for people with serious injuries and conditions to be treated first.
Your assessment will be carried out by a team of highly experienced staff, led by Emergency Nurse Practitioners giving you quick access to health information, advice and treatment.
Treatment includes being able to arrange x-rays if required, apply plasters or splints and stitch and dress wounds.

At other times you should call NHS 24 on 111, they'll help you get the right care, right place, right time. Or you could attend your local Emergency Department, however you will wait longer because people with more serious injuries and conditions will be treated first.
For stomach upsets, coughs or a high temperature then self-care, pharmacy or your GP is the answer. You should not go to an MIU for treatment. An MIU does not deal with illnesses. Get the right care for you, in the right place, at the right time.
