Minor Injury Unit

We have a Minor Injury Unit (MIU) for people aged 18 years or over with minor injuries that cannot be managed by your GP or practice nurse

This is a convenient alternative to A&E and is run by qualified emergency nurse practioners. The MIU provides treatment for:

  • Cuts and grazes
  • Sprains and strains
  • Broken bones (fractures)
  • Bites and stings
  • Infected wounds
  • Eye problems, such as infections or scratches
  • Sports injuries
  • Minor burns and scalds

Please do not attend if you are suffering from:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Chest pain
  • PR or PV bleed
  • Headaches

The Minor Injury Unit is unable to treat children under the age of 18 years. If you think your condition is serious or life-threatening, you should dial 999 or go to your nearest A&E.

There is a Minor Injury Unit X-ray facility at Caterham Dene Hospital, Monday to Friday 09.00-17.00 and from 10.00am - 17.00pm Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays.

During COVID-19 we are offering a telephone triage to all patients. Please ring 01883 837500 to speak to a receptionist and a nurse practitioner will return your call and signpost you to the most appropriate service. This is for advice only and is not a consultation

By following Government guidance we ask that all members of the public (patients and visitors) attending our clinics and Minor Injury Unit  wear a face covering.  This guidance is effective from Monday 15 June 2020.  If you find it difficult to tolerate wearing a face covering because of age, a health condition or disability you do not need to wear a face covering. 

If you would like information on how to wear or make a face covering or for more general information visit the Public Health England website
