Cornwall Council – Bank Holiday Advice – Accidents & Minor Injuries

May 26, 2016 | Parish News

You don’t have to go to the emergency department to fix sprains and strains

Don’t spend your bank holiday waiting in the emergency department to get sprains, strains and broken bones fixed – head straight for your nearest Minor Injury Unit (MIU) or Urgent Care Centre. Whether you’ve injured yourself with an over-enthusiastic football tackle in the park, or hammered your thumb doing the DIY, doctors and nurses there can treat you far quicker, leaving you to enjoy the rest of the long weekend.

There is a 24-hour Urgent Care Centre at West Cornwall Hospital in Penzance and another at Camborne Redruth Community Hospital, which is open from 11am to 7pm.

Minor injury units in Bodmin; Camborne Redruth; Falmouth; Helston; Launceston; Liskeard; Newquay; St Austell; St Barnabas; St Mary’s (Isles of Scilly); and Stratton community hospitals treat cuts, burns, sprains, broken limbs and strains, as well as treatment for minor illness. They are open in the evening and at weekends and offer free parking. Visit for opening times.
