If your injury is not serious, you can get help from a minor injuries unit or urgent care centre, rather than going to an A&E department. This will allow A&E staff to concentrate on people with serious, life-threatening conditions and will save you a potentially long wait.
Use your local minor injuries unit if you need medical treatment or advice which does not need a visit to A&E or a medical appointment.
Some examples of problems they deal with:
- Muscle or joint injuries
There are three minor injuries units and walk-in centres located across Leeds that can treat minor illnesses and injuries and give you health advice. You do not need to book an appointment.
Minor Injuries Units
Minor Injuries Units (MIUs) can treat less serious injuries and illnesses. The units can also do x-rays.
