Minor Injury Units (MIUs)

The Minor Injury Units (MIUs) are staffed by experienced emergency practitioners who are supported by health care assistants and there are no doctors in MIU. Patients that attend one of the units will be assessed and treated as quickly as possible. If your condition cannot be dealt with at the Minor Injuries Unit, then you will be referred to your GP or nearest Emergency Department or to another appropriate service.

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

Minor injury units cannot treat patients who have collapsed, chest pain, breathing problems, abdominal pain, alcohol related problems, drug overdose, gynaecology problems, health conditions normally seen by a GP such as minor illness, mental health problems, dental problems, neck injury, chest or back injury.

MIU's are a walk-in service and no appointment is required and NHS 111 Wales is the first port of call of course. However, if the patient is still unsure it is better to telephone the MIU, to allow us to put the patient in the right place, at the right time first time.
