Minor Injuries Units bandaging-wrist

Minor injuries can be treated quickly and safely at a Minor Injuries Unit (MIU) or an urgent care centre.

Emergency Nurse Practitioners at an MIU can treat conditions including:

  • cuts and grazes that might need cleaning, stitching or dressing
  • animal bites or scratches, insect stings
  • strains and sprains
  • a suspected broken bone in arm or lower leg
  • minor burns and scalds
  • minor eye infections and scratches
  • foreign body in eye, nose or ear

 

There are MIUs in Gravesend, Edenbridge and Sevenoaks.  Click here for details

Children under two should be taken to their GP or to Accident & Emergency, not to an MIU
