Extended x-ray services for airshow weekend

Hours extended for x-ray services at Newton Abbot Minor Injury Unit
Ahead of the Torbay Airshow this weekend, Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust has extended the hours for x-ray services at Newton Abbot Minor Injury Unit (MIU).

With hundreds of visitors expected in the Bay for the well-publicised event, the MIU will have x-ray services available from 8am-8pm on Saturday and Sunday​ to help with any minor injuries or aliments.  

The MIU, which is open from 8am-10pm, 7 days a week, can deal with: 

  • a cut, graze or wound
  • sprain, strain, muscle or joint injury
  • broken bone (fracture)
  • skin complaint – bite or sting (including human bites), minor burns,     including severe sunburn, and minor skin infection which needs           treating
  • emergency contraception
  • minor head injury
  • eye problem such as a minor eye infection, scratches or something     that is stuck in your eye

With the new highway now in place, Newton Abbot MIU​ is just a short trip from Torbay in the car. However, if you have life-threatening injuries, you should always attend Torbay Hospital's A&E department.
