Minor Injuries Unit

Many people continue to go to accident and emergency even when they could be treated just as professionally and usually more quickly at a minor injuries unit. At accident and emergency departments, staff must give priority to serious and life-threatening conditions.

Minor injuries units are led by highly qualified nurse practitioners with more experience and expertise than many a doctor in this kind of treatment.

Nurses, like doctors, are skilled in assessing people's conditions and knowing when a particular specialist is needed. In minor injuries units, nurses have back-up either on site, by video link or by telephone with any specialist support they might need. But, in most cases, that is not necessary.

Faversham has a Minor Injuries Unit at the Cottage Hospital.  The unit can be accessed through the Bank Street Health Centre. It is open from 8am to 8pm, seven days a week.
