Minor injuries unit
On this page:
Due to Covid-19, the Minor Injuries Unit is currently closed. From 1 December 2020, a temporary enhanced primary care hub will open at Queen Mary’s Hospital. Services provided at the hub will include treatment for wounds and minor injuries and GP appointments.
Please be aware that the primary care hub is not a walk-in service – appointments must be made via your GP or by the NHS 111 service.
If you have a minor injury or simple illness you can attend the Queen Mary’s Hospital Minor Injuries Unit to see one of our specialist emergency nurses.
You can also get emergency contraception, advice on healthy living and information about other NHS services. The Minor Injuries Unit at Queen Mary’s benefits from having full access X-ray facilities at the hospital. The minor injuries unit is a nurse led service and therefore some conditions and diagnostics (x-rays) cannot be provided by this service.
We do not treat children less than two years old or people injured in road traffic accidents.
Please contact the unit in advance If you’re not sure whether you can be treated there.
If you have flu like symptoms or are suffering from diarrhoea and vomiting, stay at home and seek advice from your GP or call NHS 111.
Is it an emergency?
An emergency is a critical or life-threatening situation like loss of consciousness, severe chest pain, heavy blood loss or serious accidents.
In an emergency visit your local Emergency Department or dial 999 or 111.
For patient advice, please email email@example.com
Monday to Sunday, open at 08.00hrs, last entry at 19.00hrs.
Please be aware that, on rare occasions, we may have to stop admission of patients earlier than 19.00, or we may have to have a reduced service due to only one staff member on duty which will mean that we are unable to treat patients that need x-rays or suturing to avoid long waits. If you have concerns that either of these events may have been instigated, please ring the unit direct before starting your journey.
X-ray services, Monday to Friday 08.00hrs – 20.00hrs (weekends and bank holidays 10 AM – 8 PM)
There is an associated Staff Portal for MIU staff. Please contact the ED Senior Team if you are a member of staff and require access
