Minor injury units

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

If you have coronavirus symptoms and need medical help for any reason, do not go to a minor injury unit.

If you have symptoms of coronavirus (a high temperature or a new, continuous cough), use the 111 coronavirus service.

Patients coming to the Royal Cornwall Hospital’s urgent treatment centre/emergency department in Truro with less serious illness and injury are now being redirected to Camborne-Redruth Community Hospital minor injury unit for assessment and treatment. Find out more.

Minor injury unit services

Minor injury units can treat a range of conditions which have occurred during the previous 14 days. These include sprains and strains; broken bones; minor burns and scalds; head injuries (but not if someone is unconscious); insect and animal bites and stings; minor eye injuries, cuts, bruising and grazes. You will be seen by an experienced nurse, without an appointment.

X-ray is available at some locations.

If you are not sure whether your injury is minor and can be treated in a minor injury unit, contact your local unit using the details below, or call NHS 111. Check the links below for current opening times, directions and contact details.
