Please note: This week (commencing Monday 1 March), you may experience some delays in receiving treatment in our Minor Injuries Unit due to a staff shortage. Thank you for your understanding.
Our unit is designed to see people who have an acute (less than two weeks) minor injury.
Our team of emergency nurse practitioners are able to see diagnose and treat minor injuries.
They can also refer people to any necessary follow up clinics relating to their minor injury that may be needed.
We see adults and children aged 2 years and over with an acute (less than two weeks) minor injury, including people with cuts, sprains, suspected minor fractures.
The service normally operates 9am – 5pm, Monday to Friday (excluding bank holidays).
We are based at Haslemere Minor Injuries Unit, Church Lane, Haslemere GU27 2BJ.
We do not offer an appointment system.
We offer a walk in service for patients with minor injuries only.
Patients are seen in time order, however, there may be occasions when patients will be seen according to the severity of their injury.
Please note: at times of high volumes of patients attending MIU, it may not be possible to offer a full consultation to people who arrive from 4pm as this is one hour before the service closes for the evening.
In this instance we will assist you to find an alternative local service according to your need
