Minor Injury Units (MIUs)


Minor Injury Units (MIU) are nurse led and treat injuries that are not critical or life threatening. They usually offer much shorter waiting times compared to other services that have to prioritise the most seriously injured patients who need urgent care.

Injuries include:

  • Minor injuries in adults
  • Minor injuries in children
  • Human/ Animal Bites
  • Minor burns
  • Minor head injuries/ scalp laceration
  • Ear/ nose foreign bodies
  • Limb injuries
  • Minor eye injuries
  • Insect stings

There are Minor Injury Units at: Holyhead, DolgellauPwllheliTremadogTywyn, LlandudnoDenbighHolywell and Mold

Normally, no appointment is needed, however to keep our staff and patients safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, some of our units are asking the public to call in advance so a patient can be assessed over the phone and advised of the most appropriate place and time to attend. This helps with maintaining social distancing and protects both staff and the public.
