Minor Injuries Units

child_plasterThese units are staffed to treat people with minor injuries, such as cuts, bruises, sprains and simple fractures – not those with medical problems or very serious injuries that need the specialist attention provided by acute hospitals such as the Royal United Hospital in Bath.

Anyone with a medical problem, such as earache or a sore throat, should not normally be attending a minor injuries unit. They should ring the Out-of-Hours service.
