Many people go to A&E when they could be treated just as well, and probably quicker, at a minor injuries unit. In A&E staff must give priority to serious and life threatening conditions, so if you go there with a minor injury you may have to wait longer to be seen. In these kinds of cases, it is much better to go along to your local minor injuries unit.
