I attended MIU to check on a cut finger (to ensure no tendon damage) and query if broken toe. My main worry was causing any further damage or ignoring anything that required treatment so the visit was more about reassurance. With NHS Direct only taking emergency calls at the time and it not being serious enough to visit A&E, the MIU was ideal. I waited under 10 mins to be seen and was treated thoroughly in a very friendly but professional manner by Tracy.
The lady on reception who booked me in was also friendly and advised that I wouldn’t have long to wait. This service certainly fits the gap between something which can't wait for a doctor’s appointment but equally isn’t bad enough for a hospital visit. If A&E was the only option, I wouldn’t have wanted to wait that long, possibly be a waste of time but I’d still be unsure if I’d done the right thing, and maybe need further treatment at a later date. Thank you for a great service.
