We provide assessment and treatment for minor injuries or illnesses that are urgent but not life threatening. We are a walk-in centre but if you contact NHS 111 they will be able to give you an appointment to be seen by either a doctor or an urgent care practitioner. If you are in doubt as to whether the UTC is the right place for you to be seen, please call 111.

We provide an assessment and treatment of patients who require urgent care to improve their symptoms, however an onward referral may be needed we may refer you to A&E, a specialist team or follow-up with your GP. Your GP will be asked to follow-up on any diagnostic tests we run as part of your assessment and this is something we will communicate with them.

  • to see their own GP
