Minor Injury waiting times

Torbay Hospital’s Emergency Department (A&E) can be a busy place. If you have a minor injury or condition which you feel needs medical attention, but is not an emergency, it may be quicker to be seen at one of our Minor Injuries Units (MIU).

For examples of the type of injuries and conditions best treated at MIUs please see our Minor Injuries Units page. This page also includes information on location, opening times, x-ray availability, as well as those injuries and conditions that cannot be treated at MIUs. Alternatively, you can visit NHS Choices’ A-Z of health conditions and treatments.

If you’re not sure which service is best for you please phone 111 for guidance.

Please be aware the waiting times and number of waiting patients displayed is updated every five minutes and may have changed by the time you arrive at the unit.*
