Minor Injury Units adn Walk-0in clinic  services include:

  • Burns and rashes
  • fractures and lacerations
  • emergency contraception and advice
  • stomach upsets
  • cuts and bruises, and
  • burns and strains

NHS WiCs and MIUs are usually managed by a nurse and are available to everyone. Patients do not need an appointment. Most centres are open 365 days a year and outside office hours. Some newly opened centres may offer different opening hours during their first few months.

NHS WiCs and MIUs treat around three million patients a year and have proved to be a successful complementary service to traditional GP and A&E services. Some NHS WiCs offer access to doctors as well as nurses. However, they are not designed for treating long-term conditions or immediately life-threatening problems.
