Urgent Care Centres

Urgent Care Centres can help with a range of symptoms from high temperatures in children, breathing problems, severe headaches, abdominal pain, painful infections through to mild injuries and burns.

The centres offer appointments that can be booked through 111 or through a GP referral and are equipped to diagnose and deal with many of the most common ailments people attend A&E for. They help ease the pressure on hospitals, leaving other parts of the system free to treat the most serious cases.

We have Urgent Treatment Centres located at both hospital sites (Royal Shrewsbury Hospital and Princess Royal Hospital, Telford) within their Emergency Departments. They are open from 9am-9pm seven days a week.

Patients whose condition is non-urgent will be redirected to their GP or minor injuries unit.
