Launceston Hospital, Okehampton Hospital and Tavistock Hospital are Community Hospitals where services are limited. Derriford Hospital and Royal Devon & Exeter are the main NHS Hospital's in the area. Nuffield Health in Plymouth is our nearest Private Hospital.
Currently only Launceston and Okehampton have Minor Injuries Units (MIU). These are designed to treat less serious injuries such as sprains, cuts and grazes. You do not need an appointment to attend the MIU. If staff feel that your injury is too serious to be treated within their department you will be referred on as appropriate.
Tavistock Hospital MIU is currently closed until the New Year.
