Urgent Care Centre

The new Urgent Care Centre works much in the same way as the previous department and can be visited for the treatment of a wide range of conditions from minor injuries and illnesses to suspected fractures and wounds.

The Urgent Care Centre is open daily from 8.00am – 8.00pm and is staffed by a highly skilled team of emergency nurses.

It provides treatment for adults and children who have a need for care that is not life-threatening but where prompt help, care or advice is required.
