There are several ways to get expert advice and treatment without calling emergency services (999) or having to go to A&E.
Use your local urgent treatment centre or walk-in centre if you need medical treatment or advice which does not need a visit to A&E or a medical appointment.
Walk-in centres or urgent treatment centres can be used for:
- Muscle or joint injuries
Urgent treatment centres
There are two urgent treatment centres in Leeds. These centres can treat less serious injuries and illnesses. The units can also do x-rays, carry out urine tests and run a minor illness service 8am – 6pm, seven days a week. Prescriptions fr minor illnesses can be provided, if appropriate, through the minor illness service.
Note: Closing times listed below may be subject to change. Please contact NHS 111 ahead of your visit. NHS 111 may also be able to book you an appointment at the urgent treatment centre making it more convenient for you.
Due to coronavirus, people need to be screened before accessing urgent treatment centres or the walk-in centre. The most convenient way of accessing this service is by phoning NHS 111 first or going online www.111.nhs.uk. They will advise you what to do and ask questions to see if you have any symptoms of coronavirus. By doing this, we can help reduce the spread of coronavirus and provide services in a safe, low risk environment.
