There are several local services open in the evening, at weekends and on Bank Holidays. These services are for patients with minor injuries and illnesses that require urgent attention, but are not life-threatening. In East Leicestershire and Rutland we have six urgent care centres. You can access them in the following ways:
- By calling NHS111 – your needs will be assessed and if required, an appointment will be made for you at the nearest centre with availability
- Via your GP practice – during the week, if you are registered with an East Leicestershire and Rutland GP practice, they can make an evening or weekend appointment for you at a nearby centre
- By walking in – you can walk-in without an appointment at any of our urgent care centres. Your needs will be assessed. If you need to be seen, you will be allocated the next available appointment at the centre. At busy times, this may mean your appointment is later in the day or at another centre. Alternatively, you may be referred to a different service, a pharmacy for example, if your needs could be treated there.
