Out of hours

Don’t forget that your local pharmacist is a great source of advice and treatment for minor injuries and illnesses.

There are also some great resources for self care on the NHS website.

However, if you do need to be seen urgently outside of our opening hours, and cannot wait until the next working day, you should dial 111, which will direct you to the most appropriate treatment options.  Calls to NHS 111 are free from mobiles and landlines.

Walk in Centres

NHS Walk-in Centres are available if you feel unwell or suffer from a minor injury when you’re away from home or your GP Surgery is closed. Walk-in centres are open seven days a week usually from 8am to 8pm. You can attend any walk-in centre and you don’t need an appointment – you can just turn up.

Walk-in centres can offer treatment for minor illnesses and injuries including: Minor infections and rashes / Stomach upsets / Minor cuts and bruises / Strains and sprains / Coughs, colds and flu-like symptoms. Walk-in centres also provide emergency contraception.

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.

To find your nearest Walk-in Centre visit

Walk-in Centres should be your first point of call before attending the A&E department, unless your condition is of a more serious nature, or outside of our opening hours.
