Minor injury units and walk-in centres are urgent care centres. They offer convenient access to treatment for a range of minor illnesses and injuries.

Conditions that can be treated at Urgent Care Centres include:

  • x-rays on weekdays (see link below for details)
  • wounds – cuts and bruises (Tetanus immunisation can also be given)
  • bites – human, insect and animal
  • minor burns and scalds
  • muscle and joint injuries – strains, sprains, limb fractures
  • sports injuries
  • emergency contraception
  • eye problems e.g. removal of foreign bodies, conjunctivitis
  • earache (patients aged two years and over)
  • cystitis (not children or male patients)
  • minor head injuries (with no loss of consciousness).

Minor Illness and Injury Unit (MIIU):

The Peterborough MIIU can treat minor injuries and illnesses from strains and sprains, to broken bones, minor burns and bites. It is often unnecessary to make a trip to A&E when you can easily be treated here, with your local pharmacist or GP. The MIIU also aims to start patient treatment within 45 minutes.
