Minor Injuries and Illness Unit

The Minor Injuries and Illness Unit offers a wider range of treatments and urgent care services such as stitching wounds, applying casts, treating burns and taking X-rays. The unit is open seven days a week from 08:00am to 20:00pm and led by staff with both nursing and medical backgrounds with enhanced skills, enabling them to see, treat and discharge patients independently. No appointment is necessary and the service aims to see and start patients’ treatments within 45 minutes of their arrival.
