Minor Injuries Units (MIUs) can't help with illnesses, but can help to treat:
- minor cuts and burns
- wound infections
- small bone breaks (from shoulder to fingers and knees to toes)
If you think you need treatment, visit the Minor Injuries Clinic at the Western General Hospital (closest entrance via Porterfield Road).
This clinic can help to treat adults and children over one year old, and is:
- open every day from 8.00am to 9.00pm (no appointment necessary - last patient book-in is at 8.30pm)
- staffed by specialist nurses, paramedics and physiotherapists
If you want to find out if they'll treat your injury before you visit, phone 0131 537 3481.
