Burnley Urgent Care Centre

Burnley Urgent Care centre provides treatment for any illnesses or injuries which aren’t life threatening, but still need treating quickly such as:

  • minor head injuries
  • suspected broken bones and fractures
  • sprains
  • cuts and scrapes
  • bites
  • eye problems
  • rising temperatures

You don't need a referral from your GP to access the service, you can just drop in. However, this service is not for General Practice problems where treatment can wait until drop in surgeries are next open or an appointment time is available.

What is urgent care for?

Our Urgent Care Centre, as the name suggests, is not an Emergency Department. The Unit is staffed by  hospital doctors and Emergency Nurse Practitioners, who can see, treat, and refer patients onto other specialists as required. They are also able to request X rays if necessary too.
