The MIU will deal with suspected broken bones, sprains and strains, minor burns or scalds, and minor chest injuries.

It's hoped the opening of the unit will help alleviate overcrowding in the Emergency Department at Mullingar hospital.

The average waiting time to be seen at a Minor Injuries Unit is under two hours.
