Relocation of Minor Injuries Unit (MIU)

Posted by Kyle Beacham (Admin) Nov 10, 2020 Posted in Urgent and Emergency Care

Who was involved?

Following the decision to take down elective services, on the 23rd March 2020 the MIU was formed and remained in place 8am-10pm 7/7 until September 2020. 

The clinical team consisted of Consultant and ACP (physiotherapists) from MIU, physio OPD, spinal surgery, T&O Surgeons (registrars and Consultants), Sports and Exercise Medicine doctors, T&O nurses and healthcare assistants, plaster technicians. With clinical support when required from the ED team.

Plans were made with input from:
  • ED Clinical Director
  • T&O Clinical Director
  • T&O Trauma Lead
  • Consultant Physiotherapist
  • Advanced Practice Physiotherapist
  • T&O OPD Nursing team
  • T&O &ED Service Management teams
How did you change?

The footprint of the traditional (minors) are was taken away from ED to reduce the footfall through ED.

All patients were given the right care early in their journey to reduce repeated hospital attendances.
