Alert

Visit Minor Injury Units (MIU) instead of attending A& E Depts or contacting the surgery
For minor injuries that have occurred up to 2 weeks before you can attend a Minor Injury Unit (MIU) in Glasgow. Your assessment at MIU will be carried out by a team of highly experienced staff, led by Emergency Nurse Practitioners giving you quick access to health information, advice and treatment. Treatment includes being able to arrange x-rays if required, apply plasters or splints and stitch and dress wounds.

What can be treated at a Minor Injuries Unit? 

    • Cuts, wounds (including those that may need stitches) and bruising
    • Minor burns and scalds
    • Sprains, minor injuries or broken bones – in legs below the knee, and arms below the shoulder, where you can bear the weight through your foot or move your fingers (our experienced staff can arrange x-rays and apply plaster if required)
    • Insect bites or other animal bites
    • Tetanus immunisation after an injury
    • Minor head injury – where there has been no loss of consciousness or vomiting, and no residual symptoms i.e. headache, nausea, visual disturbance, dizziness or any other symptom of concussion
    • Removal of foreign bodies from eyes, nose or ears
    • Nose injuries and broken noses
    • Removal of rings, earrings and studs
    • The most up-to-date information regarding MIU can be found on the NHS GGC website

CONTACTING or ATTENDING THE PRACTICE

If you require an appointment or advice, you must phone at 8.45am for telephone triage. For patient safety, please do NOT come to the surgery unless we advise you to do so.  Select our appointment line and the receptionist will ask you the reason for your call and arrange for a doctor to call you back.  The Dr will arrange a face to face appointment only if this is necessary. As we are dealing with higher than normal  call volume each day you may be asked to call back the following day, if your call is not of an urgent nature. If you are told by a Dr or nurse to attend for an appointment please come at your  allocated appointment time. We still continue to have high demand on our services and we request your patience and understanding and you may have to deal with longer wait times. We appreciate your frustrations but ask for your ongoing patience, support and kindness towards our staff, so we can continue to provide quality care, while keeping our patients safe. If your call is not of an urgent nature or can wait, you can ask for an advance appointment. Remember local pharmacies provide a ‘Pharmacy First’ service for many minor ailments and can supply medication before you need to contact the surgery.
