If you have ever broken a bone you probably wouldn't call it a minor injury. A&E departments would however, because they treat what may turn out to be life threatening conditions. Check the lists below.

Our Minor injury unit is located within the A&E area but that is not always the case in hospitals. If you do not have a life threatening condition you should go to your GP in the first instance if you are able to. Please phone 111 to get advice on the best course of action; it may save you time.
