Based in Beverley, Bridlington and Goole, Urgent Treatment Centres are open 7am to 11pm, 7 days per week.
You can walk into an Urgent Treatment Centre, however we always recommend you Talk before you walk by calling NHS 111. Where appropriate, a clinical advisor will assess your symptoms, decide what medical help you need and advise where you need to go.
Clinical advisors can also arrange an appointment for you at an Urgent Treatment Centre, 8 to 8 Centre or an out of hours GP if your condition means you need to see a health care professional within the next 12 hours.
Depending on your symptoms, Urgent Treatment Centres are able to carry out blood tests and x-rays to get a better understanding of what is wrong with you and, if needed, can prescribe medication and issue prescriptions for some conditions.
