Emergency Care

If you have an illness that is not life threatening, contact your General Practitioner first if possible. You can also check our website, which can give you advice or direct you to our service to treat your injury.

If your injury is not serious, you can get help from a minor injuries unit or urgent care centre, rather than going to an Emergency department. This will allow the Emergency staff to concentrate on people with serious, life-threatening conditions and will save you a potentially long wait.

Minor injuries units and urgent care centres can treat:

  • sprains and strains
  • broken bones
  • wound infections
  • minor burns and scalds
  • minor head injuries
  • insect and animal bites
  • minor eye injuries
  • injuries to the back, shoulder and chest

Minor injuries units and urgent care centres cannot treat:

  • chest pain
  • breathing difficulties
  • major injuries
  • problems usually dealt with by a GP
  • stomach pains
  • gynaecological problems
  • pregnancy problems
  • allergic reactions
  • overdoses
  • alcohol related problems
  • mental health problems
  • conditions likely to require hospital admission
