Walk-in and urgent treatment centres
If you have a non-life-threatening illness or injury, you can get help from a walk-in or urgent treament centre, rather than going to an A&E department. This will allow A&E staff to concentrate on people with serious, life-threatening conditions and will save you a potentially long wait.
These centres are run by experienced clinicians to treat minor illnesses and injuries, such as:
- infections and rashes
- blood pressure checks
- fractures and lacerations
- stomach aches
- vomiting and diarrhoea
- hay fever
- insect and animal bites
- stitches (sutures)
- dressing care
- minor cuts and bruises
- minor burns and strains
Walk-in centres run on a first come, first served basis and you do not need an appointment to access the service.
Appointments for the urgent treatment centre are obtained via 111 or patients can attend the Emergency Department, be seen by a UTC Streaming Nurse and given a UCC appointment if appropriate. The UTC is located adjacent to the Emergency Department and shares the same entrance.
