Welcome to the Minor Injuries Centre

 

The Minor Injuries Centre at St Joseph’s Hospital provides assessment and treatment to patients over 6 years of age who have sustained a minor injury.

 

Our dedicated and highly experienced team consists of Emergency Specialist Dr Alan Ng and Emergency Nurse Practitioners. The centre provides prompt, high quality care in comfortable surroundings. The centre has a treatment room for children to help put them at ease.

 

The Minor Injuries Centre provides a walk in service, so an appointment is not necessary. In most cases you will be seen immediately, however our service pledge is that you will be seen within 30 minutes even in our busiest periods.

 

We have immediate access to onsite facilities including blood tests, X-rays and scans. Our designated treatment room and plaster room ensure smooth and efficient care. We are also able to prescribe antibiotics and pain relief if necessary to aid your recovery.

 

If your injury requires more specialist attention we can refer you to our onsite clinical physiotherapy centre or seamlessly arrange an appointment with one of over 160 leading consultants.

 

Examples of conditions that we commonly treat at the Minor Injuries Centre include:

 

  • head injuries without loss of consiousness or vomiting
  • whiplash
  • limb fractures
  • soft tissue injury/sports injury
  • minor burns/scalds
  • minor eye injury
  • foreign bodies to eyes, ear and nose
  • facial injuries which do not require extensive cosmetic intervention
  • cuts, grazes, bites and stings
