MIU Opening Times:

The centre is open 7 days a week, 365 days a year – 8am-9pm
Last Arrivals: 30 minutes before closing

Please note: The units can sometimes get very busy just before closing time. If this is the case patients will be assessed and either advised to attend A&E or, if it is clinically safe, to return to MIU the following morning.

The Wolds View Primary Care Centre is an integrated service providing both a GP practice and a Minor Injuries and Minor Illness Service and is conveniently located within Bridlington Hospital. The Centre can see and treat anyone living or visiting Bridlington and is run by highly trained and experienced doctors and nurse practitioners.

An appointment is not required in order to visit the Minor Injuries Unit and patients are seen in order of priority. During busy periods, waiting times will inevitably be longer but our aim is to see you as quickly as possible.

Many people go to Accident and Emergency (A&E) with minor injuries, when they could be usually treated much more quickly at a minor injuries unit.

The Minor Injury Unit is run by highly trained nurse practitioners who will see, assess, diagnose, treat and discharge patients. Children under 2 years old are unable to be treated at this minor injury unit.
