Rutland Memorial Hospital: Urgent Care & Minor Injuries

**There have been alterations to the provision of LLR Urgent Care & Minor Injuries centres during the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak. 

Rutland Urgent Care Centre will operate at weekends, 9am - 7pm, and by appointment only. To access the Centre, call NHS 111 - you will be offered an appointment if appropriate. 

The following centres are also open:

  • Loughborough Urgent Care Centre
  • Oadby Urgent Care Centre
  • Merlyn Vaz Hub (appointment only)
  • Westcotes Healthcare Hub (appointment only)

GP practice, pharmacy and NHS 111 services remain available as usual.**

Need care in the evening, at a weekend or on a Bank Holiday?

Rutland Memorial Hospital is open.

You can use this service if you have a minor injury or illness that needs urgent attention, but is not life-threatening. 

How to get an appointment:

  • By calling NHS 111 – you will be assessed and if you need an appointment, one will be made for you.  This might be at one of the other local centres listed below if there are no appointments available at Rutland Memorial Hospital.
  • Through your GP practice – during the week, if you are registered with a Rutland GP practice, they can make an evening or weekend appointment for you.
  • By walking in – you can walk-in without an appointment at any of the urgent care centres. Your needs will be assessed. If you need to be seen, you will be allocated the next available appointment. At busy times, this may mean your appointment is later in the day or at another centre. You may be referred to a different service, a pharmacy for example, if your needs could be treated there.

There are five other local centres you can also use:

Enderby Leisure Centre: Mill Lane, Enderby, Leicester LE19 4LX

Feilding Palmer Hospital: Gilmorton Rd, Lutterworth LE17 4DZ

St Luke’s Treament Centre: 33 Leicester Road, Market Harborough, LE16 7BN

Melton Mowbray Hospital: Thorpe Road, Melton Mowbray LE13 1SJ

Need care during the day between Monday and Friday? 

It is always advisable to contact your own GP in the first instance.

This service is run in the same way as the evening, weekend and bank holiday service and can be accessed by calling NHS 111, by pre-booking via your GP practice (if you are registered in East Leicestershire and Rutland) or by walking in for treatment.

Additionally, there are minor injury only services in East Leicestershire and Rutland that are open between 8.30am and 6.30pm. These services are available to everyone, regardless of which GP practice they are registered with and you can walk-in for treatment. These services are available at:
