Minor Injury Unit (MIU) Tavistock

The Minor Injury Unit at Tavistock Hospital is open every day to treat you if you have an injury which is not life-threatening, but still requires urgent treatment.

Our team of nurse practitioners have undertaken specialist training and are able to assess, diagnose and treat patients of all ages.

You do not need to pre-book an appointment, just drop-in to the unit during our opening times.

Opening times

Unfortunately, we are no longer able to offer an X-ray service at Tavistock MIU as the machine has broken and we have exhausted all options for repair.

We understand this will be concerning for patients, but we would like to reassure them that we are exploring different options to reinstate the service, however this is not straightforward due to the age of the building.

We are sorry that patients are having to travel further to receive their X-rays and would advise anyone who needs an X-ray in the Tavistock area to call 111, so they can be redirected to the nearest facility.

Problems that can be treated

Examples of the problems we can see you for:

  • Cuts - we can use glue, steristrips (paper stitches) or sutures to close wounds
  • Small burns or scalds
  • Bites and stings
  • Sprains and certain fractures (upper and lower limbs)
  • Minor head injuries
  • Infected wounds
  • Foreign bodies in eyes
