MIU at Mount Vernon closed

Date published: 30 March 2020


From Monday 30 March, the Minor Injuries Unit at Mount Vernon Hospital will be closed.

This is similar to most GP practices in North West London, which are all minimising face-to-face consultations. The NHS in North West London is clear that in these very challenging times it is essential that our health services can be as flexible as possible to provide safe and effective care to patients, whilst protecting vital frontline staff.

In line with all current requirements, if you think you may have the symptoms of Covid-19, please do not come to hospital or attend your GP. Stay at home and visit the NHS111 website for advice.
