Injury Unit Costs

Patients can go directly to the Injury Unit or be referred by a GP. Injury Units do not treat children under the age of five, serious head injuries, abdominal (stomach) pain, medical illnesses or mental health problems. Check out the list of treatments available for adults and children over 5

Please note some Injury Units currently have higher age limits for the treatment of children. Check the list here.  

Each Injury Unit is linked to a Hub Emergency Department in an acute hospital. If a patient in an Injury Unit needs to be admitted to hospital they will be referred directly to linked hospital, in exactly the same way as if they had attended the Hub Emergency Department.”
