The NHS Urgent Treatment Centre in Nottingham (telephone 0115 8838500) is also open from 7am-7pm every day of the year for non-life-threatening injury or illness that needs treating straight away.
During normal opening hours, there will be a set number of urgent on-the-day appointments available for problems which cannot safely wait for a more routine appointment Once these have all been taken, we will declare ourselves ‘full’ and will be unable to offer any more urgent on-the-day appointments as it would be unsafe to do so. At this point we will advise patients that they will need to use a different service such as NHS 111, pharmacies, Walk-in-Centre and in very urgent cases A&E.
When making an urgent on-the-day appointment, please be aware that you are utilising one of a finite number of appointment slots, and that other patients may miss out on an appointment as a consequence. An “urgent on-the-day problem” would be defined as a something which cannot safely wait for another day.
