For minor injuries such as cuts (including ones that need stitches), broken bones, sprains and minor burns go to one of our locally based Minor Injury Units (MIU).
Adult MIU services are specifically for those who are 16 years of age and older. For MIU services for children aged 15 or under, please see our Children and Babies MIU page.
We have three dedicated MIUs in NHSGGC
(The MIU at West Glasgow Ambulatory Care Hospital closed at 9pm on Friday 20th April 2018).
Outwith these times you should go to your local A&E. There are also dedicated areas to treat minor injuries within each of our five A&Es.
If you have a minor illness such as stomach upsets, coughs, running a high temperature then self-care, pharmacy or your GP is the answer. You should not go to an MIU for treatment. An MIU does not deal with illnesses.
