About the service

The Minor Injury Unit (MIU) is a purpose-built facility based in North Somerset Community Hospital offering treatment for a wide range of minor injuries.

Treatment is delivered by our specialist emergency nurse practitioners who are fully trained in both adult and paediatric care.

Our specialist practitioners are able to treat patients with minor injuries such as:

  • Wounds and grazes
  • Cuts needing stitches
  • Trips and falls
  • Broken bones (we have an x-ray facility on site)
  • Minor burns
  • Sports injuries
  • Sprains, bruises and abrasions
  • Head injuries (no loss of consciousness)
  • Simple eye trauma e.g. foreign bodies
  • Removal of foreign bodies
  • Advice
  • Minor injuries in children over 12 months of age
  • All minor injuries following accidents / incidents.

Anyone above the age of 12 months can visit the MIU. Our waiting times are usually much shorter than at your local A&E department. We aim to see people within two hours and children are dealt with as a priority.

We encourage you to attend the MIU with the above conditions to avoid delays and to help ease the pressure on our local A&E departments. 

There is parking available at North Somerset Community Hospital.
