Call MIA Minor Injury Assessment

Call MIA first for advice on Minor Injuries

NHS Lothian is asking anyone with a minor injury to Call MIA first to get advice about minor injuries quickly and safely.

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.
