Patients with an urgent injury or illness that is not serious, life or limb threatening can arrange to go to their nearest Urgent Treatment Centre. Urgent Treatment Centres can treat a number of common conditions such as:

  • Cuts and grazes
  • Sprains and strains
  • Simple broken bones
  • Wound and wound infections
  • Minor burns and scalds
  • Minor head injuries
  • Insect and animal bites
  • Minor eye injuries (foreign bodies in eye)
  • Back, head and neck injuries/whiplash
  • Minor back injuries
  • Skin infections/rashes/allergic reactions
  • Urine infections
  • Raised temperature/fever

In addition, Urgent Treatment Centres have access to x-ray facilities and patient diagnostic testing including urinalysis, blood glucose testing and ECGs, allowing nurse practitioners to assess and diagnose conditions and where necessary, prescribe medication, issue prescriptions and provide onward referrals to appropriate departments i.e. fracture clinics.

People can walk into an Urgent Treatment Centre, but the advice is to ‘Talk before you walk’ by contacting NHS 111 and, where appropriate, a clinical advisor will assess symptoms, provide advice and guidance or decide what medical help is needed, advise where to go and if needed arrange an appointment.
