Urgent treatment centres
Urgent treatment centres (UTCs) are staffed by GPs and other qualified healthcare staff. They are equipped to diagnose and deal with many of the most common injuries and illnesses that people might go to A&E for. NHS111 or your GP may make an appointment for you at an urgent treatment centre if they think that this is the best service for your needs. You can also go to an urgent treatment centre without an appointment and wait to be seen. At busy times waiting times may be longer.
