‘Urgent Treatment Centre’

The new name for Minehead Community Hospital injuries unit.

THE Minor Injuries Unit (MIU) in Minehead Community Hospital is being renamed to bring it in line with others across the country.

From Monday (April 1), it will become known as an Urgent Treatment Centre.

Six Somerset Minor Injuries Units, which are all run by the Somerset NHS Foundation Trust, are being similarly renamed.

UTCs will provide the same service as did MIUs, and from the same team of specialist nurses, paramedics, and healthcare assistants.
