staff at Doncaster Royal Infirmary will be setting up a new minor injuries unit to help treat patients over winter.

The minor injuries unit (MIU) will be staffed by experienced emergency nurses who can assess, diagnose and treat a wide range of ailments including cuts, sprains and some simple fractures.

The MIU will be open from 8am to 7pm, seven days a week and will enable staff in the Emergency Department to focus on the most seriously-unwell patients. There will also be an enhanced triage system for people who make their own way to the Emergency Department (ED) and haven’t been referred there by their GP.
