Services across the NHS currently remain in high demand.
Some smaller urgent care walk-in centres, such as Swadlincote in Derbyshire, have limitations on capacity.
If we reach or pass capacity, we may not be able to accept new arrivals to ensure we can deliver safe and effective patient care.
We advise you to contact 111 - either online at nhs.111.uk or by phone to 111 - before you attend so that we can advise you of the most appropriate care route.
Working 365 days a year and available 24/7 as part of the NHS frontline, we lead Urgent Care within Emergency Departments, Urgent Treatment Centres, GP and Primary care surgeries and out in our communities – offering a full range of both ‘in and out of hours’ clinical specialist services, provided by a diverse workforce made up of medical, nursing, allied health and support teams.

When to visit an Urgent Treatment Centre (walk-in centre or minor injury unit)?
You can go to an urgent treatment centre if you need urgent medical attention, but it's not a life-threatening situation.
