Our Urgent Treatment Centre will see anyone that does not require an ambulance or a visit to an Emergency Department but whose complaint is too urgent for a routine appointment with their GP. You do not need an appointment to attend the Urgent Treatment Centre and there is no need to ring us before coming.
You may be sent to the Urgent Treatment Centre by a healthcare professional such as your GP, midwife, pharmacist, one of our ambulance crews or NHS 111.
