Urgent treatment centres

Urgent care is for anything that needs the same day treatment. 

Urgent treatment centres can treat most injuries and illnesses that are urgent. This may include sprains and strains, fractures and suspected broken bones, minor head injuries, cuts and wound infections.


To get treatment at an urgent treatment centre, first call NHS 111. They will assess your condition and book you an appointment to see a clinician. This will mean you will avoid spending unnecessary time in the waiting room to be seen. The treatment centres have been made as safe as possible for patients and staff, and social distancing measures are in place.


The urgent treatment centres are GP-led, with doctors and nurses who will provide treatment.


The urgent treatment centres are located at:


Queen’s Hospital (UTC open)

Harold Wood Polyclinic (UTC open)

Barking Community Hospital (UTC service open from end of July 2020)

King George Hospital  (new UTC service open from 1 September 2020)


You should only go to Accident and Emergency when your life or your long term health is at risk. This includes serious injury, blood loss, serious burns, chest pain, suspected strokes, choking or loss of consciousness.
