Urgent treatment centres are a facility you can go to if you need urgent medical attention but it's not a life-threatening situation.

At the moment, the NHS offers a mix of walk-in centres, urgent care centres, minor injury units and urgent treatment centres, all with different levels of service.

By the end of 2019, these will all be called urgent treatment centres.

Urgent treatment centres are GP-led and open for at least 12 hours a day every day of the week (including bank holidays).

You may be referred to an urgent treatment centre by NHS 111 or by your GP. You can also just turn up and walk in.

Conditions that can be treated at an urgent treatment centre include:

sprains and strains

suspected broken limbs

minor head injuries

cuts and grazes

bites and stings

minor scalds and burns

ear and throat infections

skin infections and rashes

eye problems

coughs and colds

feverish illness in adults

feverish illness in children

abdominal pain

vomiting and diarrhoea

emergency contraception
