The Urgent Treatment Centre is for you if you need urgent medical attention but it's not a life-threatening situation, the Centre is GP-led and has the benefit of being located alongside other hospital services, for example X-ray.

You may be referred to the service by NHS 111 or by your GP. You can also just turn up and walk in.  Please can we remind you that there are other options available such as your local pharmacy and the out of hours GP service.

If you need urgent medical attention but it's not a life-threatening situation, you should first call 111. If you think life is at risk, you should call 999.

NHS 111 will assess you and give you the option to speak to a nurse, doctor or paramedic if appropriate. You'll then be advised where you need to go for treatment.

This could be the new walk in centre, an out-of-hours GP service, your local GP in normal hours, or A&E if necessary.

The walk in centre has a clear process in place if it's decided you need treatment at A&E rather than at the walk in centre. If this is the case, there is the added advantage of not having to make an additional trip as all of the services are in one place.
