Minor Injuries Unit

Exmouth Minor Injury Unit is on hand to treat both residents and visitors of Exmouth.

Situated on the beautiful East Devon Jurassic Coastline, Exmouth attracts many people for both day-trips and holidays. Of course, for some of us, we are fortunate enough to call this wonderful place home.

The amazing surroundings encourage everyone to get outdoors and be active. Unfortunately, whilst out having fun accidents can happen. Exmouth MIU is here for all those minor injuries. Open from 8am until 10pm every day of the year, we are always available to assess any mishaps, treat any injuries and get you back out there.

With so many holiday-makers away from home, we are also here for all your minor illnesses that may occur. Click on the links below for further details out the Exmouth Minor Injury Unit, our MIU Team and the services we can offer.

If you have an injury or illness and are unsure what to do, either give us a call or just stop in to the MIU. We are always happy to help. Click on the link below for our contact details.

About us:

Exmouth Minor Injury Unit is a nurse-led walk-in facility open from 8am until 10pm every day of the year including Bank Holidays. Our highly skilled team of Nurse Practitioners, Healthcare Assistants and Paramedics are on hand to assess and treat any minor injury. Where your injuries require more specialist attention, they will refer you directly onto our colleagues and the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital.

In addition to injuries, our team can also help with a range of minor illnesses. During normal Practice hours, residents of Exmouth should contact their own GP to be seen if feeling unwell. Visitors to the Exmouth, however, are welcome to attend anytime if they feel unwell. Our nursing team will be more than happy to assess your condition and, if require, the GPs from Claremont Medical Practice are available for more complex issues. Outside of normal Practice hours this minor illness service is open to all, with Devon Doctors providing the GP advice when necessary.

If required, Exmouth MIU also has stock of medication to treat these illnesses avoiding the stress of trying to find an open pharmacy in the evening and weekends.
