North Devon District Hospital’s Emergency Department (A&E) can be a busy place. If you have a minor injury or condition which you feel needs medical attention, but is not an emergency, it may be quicker to be seen at one of our Minor Injuries Units (MIU).

To help you choose the appropriate NHS service, an overview of your options and what you can expect can be found here. Alternatively, you can visit NHS Choices’ A-Z of health conditions and treatments.

* The ‘current number of patients waiting to be seen’ refers to the number of patients waiting to be fully assessed. The ‘current longest waiting time’ refers to the current waiting time to be seen and fully assessed by a doctor or nurse practitioner. Once you are seen by a doctor or nurse you may still have to wait several hours for treatment, especially when the department is busy with more clinically urgent patients.
