Minor injuries units & urgent care centres

Minor injuries units and urgent care centres can help with injuries that need attention urgently but are not critical or life threatening, such as cuts, sprains and minor burns.

GP out of hours service

The GP out of hours service is available if you have an urgent medical need during the hours that your GP surgery is closed.
