The Minor Injuries Unit provides treatment for adults for less serious injuries, such as sprains, cuts and grazes. Many people go to Accident and Emergency (A&E) with minor injuries, when they could be usually treated much more quickly at a Minor Injuries Unit.
This service is for adults only. Children with minor injuries should be taken to the Sheffield Children's Hospital Accident & Emergency department.
You do not need an appointment to visit the Minor Injuries Unit. It is run by a team of highly qualified nurse practitioners who have experience and expertise in treating minor injuries.
The Minor Injuries Unit treats most minor injuries such as cuts and bruises, minor burns, fractures to the hands and lower arms, lower legs and feet. The Unit cannot treat injuries to the chest, back, hips or thighs.
If you're not sure whether your injury can be treated at the Minor Injuries Unit, telephone NHS Direct on 0845 4647, they will be able to advise you.
