Minor injury units

Coronavirus (COVID-19)If you have coronavirus symptoms and need medical help for any reason, do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. If you have symptoms of coronavirus (a high temperature, a new, continuous cough or a loss/change in sense of smell or taste), use the 111 coronavirus service.

If you need to visit a minor injury unit, please don’t just turn up. You may be directed elsewhere or have to wait longer. Contact NHS 111 online at 111.nhs.uk or call 111 at any time of day or night, to find out where you should go and when.

Arrangements have not changed for people with serious or life-threatening illnesses or injuries. Please continue to dial 999 as before.
