Minor injury unit
If you need urgent - but not emergency - NHS care in Cornwall, contact NHS 111.
Just contact NHS 111 by phone or online at any time of day or night, to find out where you should go and when.
If needed, expert clinicians will arrange for you to be seen at the Emergency Department (ED) or at our range of other treatment units. Please don’t just turn up, as you may be directed elsewhere or have to wait longer.
This is a new way of accessing urgent care in Cornwall, to make sure everyone stays as safe as possible during the pandemic. It will help the NHS manage the flow of patients when capacity in waiting rooms is much smaller than before, to maintain distancing and reduce the risk of infection.
It means you will get the right treatment, more quickly - and probably closer to home as well.
And if you’re a visitor to Cornwall, you don’t need to look up details of NHS services if you need urgent treatment – just phone 111 or go online at: 111.nhs.uk/
