Minor Injuries Unit - Adults

For minor injuries such as cuts that need stitches, broken bones, sprains and minor burns, go to one of our 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

  • New Stobhill Hospital - open 9.00am to 9.00pm every day of the year
  • New Victoria Hospital - open 9.00am to 9.00pm every day of the year
  • Vale of Leven Hospital - open 8.00am to 9.00pm every day of the year

(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 Emergency Department. Each of our five Emergency Departments have dedicated areas to treat minor injuries.

For stomach upsets, coughs or 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. Get the right care for you, in the right place.
