The Urgent Care Centre is open every day of the year including weekends and bank holidays between 7am and 9pm and you don't need an appointment, just walk in.
The Urgent Care Centre provides access to assessment and treatment if you need help with an urgent health problem.
The service aims to be a real alternative to visiting the emergency department (ED) for non-life threatening injury and illness that needs treating straight away. You should have a shorter waiting time than if you visit ED /the hospital.
The centre offers assessment and treatment for urgent health conditions such as:
- Minor burns or scalds
- Minor head injuries with no loss of consciousness
- Skin infections or animal bites
- Suspected broken bones, sprains and strains (X-ray facilities are available) - if you have a fracture, the Urgent Care Centre will provide appropriate treatment on site and arrange for you to have follow-up care at the fracture clinic
- Eye infections or minor eye injuries
- Open wounds or cuts that may require suturing (stitches)
An urgent dental service is also available on-site that can provide free advice on dental problems. The operating hours are:
Monday 8.30am - 5.45pm
Tuesday 8.30am - 6.45pm
Wednesday 8.30am - 5.45pm
