When Should I Worry - Childrens Health Guide

Minor Injuries Unit (MIU)

If your injury is not serious, you can get help from a Minor Injuries Unit (MIU) rather than going to an A&E department. This will allow A&E staff to concentrate on people with serious, life-threatening conditions and will save you a potentially long wait.
Our local MIU is at Victoria Hospital in Wimborne and is open Monday to Friday 8.30am-4.30pm.
Contact details:
Address: Victoria Hospital, Victoria Road, Wimborne, Dorset BH21 1ER
