​Minor Injuries Unit (MIU)

The Minor Injuries Unit is open on Tuesdays and Wednesdays between 9am-5pm.

Please note the service will not be available any other days at this current time, but the operating hours will be reviewed regularly and will be extended dependant on staffing levels.

NHS 111 can help if you have an urgent but not life threatening medical problem and you’re not sure what to do. Advice is available from the NHS 111 online service (for people aged over 5 years) or call 111 to speak to a trained adviser who will assess your symptoms and direct you to the most suitable healthcare service, and if required they can also book an appointment. Local pharmacies also offer expert advice for a range of common conditions and minor injuries such as cystitis, skin rashes, aches and pains, coughs and colds, red eye, sinusitis, earaches and sore throats. If you need treatment for a serious accident and emergency, such as unconsciousness, heavy blood loss, suspected heart attack, stroke, broken bones, please visit the Emergency Department at Warwick Hospital.

What we do

We provide help to those with a non-serious injury. Using the MIU rather than Accident and Emergency (A&E), you allow A&E staff to concentrate on people with serious and life-threatening conditions and you save yourself potentially a long wait.

The Minor Injuries Unit treats conditions such as:

  • sprains and strains
  • wound infections
  • minor burns and scalds
  • minor head injuries
  • Contact and location
