What conditions can I go to an urgent treatment centre or minor injury unit with?

Minor injury units offer a walk-in service led by Emergency Nurse Practitioners (ENPs), with X-ray and a pharmacy on site.

ENPs can prescribe medication such as antibiotics and can diagnose and treat most common illnesses and injuries people attend emergency departments for.

You can find more information about urgent treatment centres, including the types of conditions and injuries they can treat on the NHS England website (opens in new window) >.
