Call MIA is an online video consultation service for patients aged 8 years and over who have an injury less than 14 days old. It is carried out by a qualified Nurse Practitioner who can provide advice in minutes on injuries including:
• strains, sprains and suspected broken bones of arms and legs
• wounds and minor burns
• minor bumps to head and face
• simple eye injuries
• insect bites and stings
A lot of minor injuries can be treated from the comfort of your own home or with the help of a local pharmacist. If you do need to be examined in person, Call MIA will arrange a suitable appointment at a minor injuries service so you don’t need to wait when you attend.
To arrange an appointment call freephone 0300 790 6267 between 8am and 8pm 7 days a week.
If your minor injury is over 14 days old, please contact your local GP. Children aged 7 years and under should attend one of the services at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Western General Hospital or St John’s Hospital.
