Minor Injuries Unit
A 24 hour Minor Injuries Unit (MIU) is operating at Bransholme Health Centre.
Many people go to Accident and Emergency when they could be treated just as well and probably quicker at an MIU.
Our MIU offers safe, fast and convenient treatment for less serious injuries, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The unit also has an x-ray machine.
Less severe injuries can be treated here and you don’t need an appointment or to live locally – simply walk in.
Medical care is provided by highly trained and experienced Nurse Practitioners who treat the following conditions for patients over 18 months old:
- Ankle, hand, wrist, knee, and elbow injuries
- Human, animal and insect bites and stings
- Burns and scalds
- Wounds and cuts including those needing stitching
- Eye complaints
- Minor head injuries
- Removal of splinters and other foreign bodies in skin
- Suspected fractures and breaks
- Muscle and joint injuries eg sprains, strains and contusions
- Healthcare advice, information and direction to local services
If you need treatment for a child under 18 months of age please see your GP, Out of Hours or A&E.

X-Ray opening times:
Monday – Friday: 8.30am -12.30 pm and 1.30 pm – 5 pm

Please note: The x-ray can sometimes get very busy just before closing time. If this is the case patients will be assessed and either advised to attend A&E or, if it is clinically safe, to return to MIU the following morning.
This service is open to anyone who can usually access NHS care. The service is designed to address urgent health needs involving an injury that has occurred within the previous 24-72 hrs, however we understand that many people try and self-manage their symptoms in the first place, so appropriate presentations outside these hours may also be accepted for assessment, advice and treatment.
Contact NHS 111 for the out of hours GP and out of hours/emergency dental service.
