Last Friday, Graham Stuart, Member of Parliament for Beverley and Holderness was joined by members of the Withernsea and District Health Forum for a visit to Withernsea’s Minor Injury Unit.

The nurse-led unit, which is currently open from 9am – 5pm Mondays to Fridays, receives and treats patients with non-serious injuries reducing the need for people to travel to accident and emergency departments further afield.

Following the visit Graham commented, “The minor injuries unit (MIU) is a vital facility for Withernsea and I would like to see more people taking advantage of the service.  Not everybody is fully aware of where they should go when they need medical attention and, often, they’re not going straight to the MIU which would be the best place for treatment. I hope to see an education campaign to make it clearer when you should use your GP, or go to the MIU or rush to A&E.
