Overview

Widnes Urgent Care Centre

The Urgent Care Centre is a new ‘walk-in’ service at the Healthcare Resource Centre for patients who have a minor injury or illness/condition that requires urgent attention but is not critical or life threatening.

The UCC replaces the service that used to be provided at Widnes Walk in Centre.

The UCC is run by a team of highlyskilled multidisciplinary staff consisting of doctors and nurses, all of whom are experienced at diagnosing and treating minor injuries or illnesses. For example, they can treat sprains, broken bones, bites or stings, as well as assess and treat wounds. Diagnostic facilities, like x-ray, are also available at the UCC.

No appointment needed.

The service is available all year round 7 days a week from 7am to 10pm Monday to Sunday.

The minimum range of services and treatments includes:
