Urgent treatment centres

Urgent treatment centres provide medical help when it's not a life-threatening emergency.

For non – life threatening emergencies

You can go to an urgent treatment centre if you need medical help but it's not a life threatening situation, they can diagnose and deal with many common health problems.

Other types of urgent care services are called minor injuries units or walk-in centres. They offer some, but not all, of the same help as urgent treatment centres.

When to visit

  • sprains and strains
  • suspected broken bones
  • injuries, cuts, and bruises
  • stomach pain, vomiting and diarrhoea
  • skin infections and rashes
  • high temperature in children and adults
  • mental health concerns
  • If you need a prescription one can be organised for you.
