Urgent treatment centres are for conditions such as suspected broken bones or breathing difficulties which need immediate care but are not life-threatening.
Nurses at walk-in centres can offer treatment for minor illnesses and injuries.

You'll be asked about your medical problem when you arrive at a walk-in centre. Patients are treated based on the urgency of their need, so please be aware that during busy times that you may need to wait.
X-rays are available both centres between 8am and 8pm. Outside of these hours, if an x-ray is needed, you may be asked to attend the Emergency Department or to return the next day.
Waiting times vary. The aim is to see and treat all patients within four hours of arrival (please don’t call for waiting times as the situation can quickly change). For people with booked appointments, you should be seen within 30 minutes of your appointment time. If driving, please allow plenty of time to park. There is parking on site, however, this is subject to availability and cannot be guaranteed.
You can walk-in but if you’re worried about an urgent medical concern, please contact NHS 111, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Fully-trained advisors can also assess if you need an ambulance and send one to you.
