What if I need care right away?

Bransholme Health CentreFor routine GP services click here.

Sometimes you may need urgent medical treatment, but it’s not an emergency. If you need to see your GP with something that cannot wait until the next day, then you may need to visit the Out-Of Hours GP.

If you need treatment for a child under 18 months of age please see your GP, Out of Hours or A&E.

Have you suffered a sprain, strain, cut, mild burn or other minor injury? Then a minor injuries unit is the best place for you to seek treatment.

In the event of a life-threatening emergency (such as; loss of consciousness, acute confused state, fits that are not stopping, severe chest pain, breathing difficulties or severe bleeding that cannot be stopped) then you need to dial 999 and visit A&E immediately.

Out of Hours GP

The Out of Hours Service should only be used if you have a medical emergency that cannot wait until the next working day to be treated. Unsure if this applies to you? Contact NHS 111; they can assess your situation and advise you.

If you have a cold, cough or sore throat then your Pharmacist may be able to help. Find out more here.

Minor Injuries Unit

Less severe injuries can be treated in minor injuries units (MIUs) and NHS walk-in centres (WICs), which can treat patients without an appointment. Minor injuries units can be a quick alternative to A&E for minor injuries such as burns and scalds, insect bites and stings and sprains.

It is not necessary to live locally or to make an appointment – you can simply walk-in.

Medical care is provided by highly trained and experienced Nurse Practitioners who treat the following conditions for patients over 18 months old:

  • ankle, hand, wrist, knee, and elbow injuries
  • animal and insect bites
  • burns and scalds
  • cuts including those needing stitching
  • eye complaints
  • minor head injuries
  • If you need treatment for a child under 18 months of age please see your GP, Out of Hours or A&E.
