Opening times for minor injuries units

Date: 24 December 2015

 

Avoid the Christmas and New Year rush at A&E

 

If you have a minor injury or illness over Christmas and the New Year, but need to see a healthcare professional, an MIU (minor injury unit) could be for you. Somerset Partnership runs seven MIUs across the county for patients whose injury or illness is not life threatening. They are all run by specialist nurses who can independently assess, diagnose, investigate, and treat a wide range of common accidents and injuries. Find your local MIU and contact details below.
