Minor injuries units & urgent care centres

Minor injuries units and urgent care centres are there to help with injuries that need attention urgently but are not critical or life threatening – such as:

  • sprains, strains, cuts and grazes
  • arm, foot and leg injuries
  • bites, minor burns and scalds
  • broken bones
  • minor head injuries
  • eye problems such as scratches and foreign bodies in the eye.

They treat children as well as adults.

They’re in in convenient places and you can be seen much more quickly than at A&E.

In fact, many A&E departments will pass you on to the nearest minor injuries unit or urgent care centre if your condition isn’t serious enough for A&E – so you could save considerable time if you go straight there.

Most minor injuries units and urgent care centres are open long hours. You don’t need to make an appointment and you’ll be seen by nursing staff in a calm, relaxed setting.
