For people outside of Leicester city – in Leicestershire county and in Rutland – there are urgent care centres. These offer a range of treatment for minor illnesses and injuries including, cuts, stomach upsets, burns and strains. You will be seen by an experienced nurse, without an appointment. You do not need to be registered to attend these services. X-ray is available at some locations. There are five such centres in Leicestershire and Rutland.
New opening hours for urgent care services in East Leicestershire and Rutland
From 1 April 2019, urgent care services will be open for longer. When GP surgeries close at 6:30pm, the urgent care services will open, making it much clearer for patients where to go, and when. The change also brings much greater efficiency and reduces overlap in hours between GP surgeries and urgent care services.
From the same date, these new opening hours also apply to the new Enderby Urgent Care Centre, based at Enderby Leisure Centre.
The new opening times are listed below.
|Area||Location||Weekdays||Weekends & Bank Holidays|
|Blaby||Enderby Leisure Centre||6:30pm – 9pm||9am – 7pm|
|Lutterworth||Feilding Palmer Hospital||No change (In-hours care via GP practice, no evening service)||9am – 7pm|
