Minor Injuries/Illnesses at St Mary's NHS Treatment Centre

We can provide a fast, convenient service for those who have a minor injury or illness

Our team of skilled GPs and nurse practitioners can offer treatment, advice and information for a range of minor injuries and illnesses. Our waiting times can be considerably less than emergency departments and if we are unable to help, we can refer or redirect you to the most appropriate service.

Who we treat

We treat both adults and children and provide a separate children's waiting area with play facilities and children's TV.

When we're open

Patients do not need to make an appointment, just turn up during opening hours, which are Monday-Friday 7.30am-10.00pm, weekends and Bank Holidays 8.00am-10.00pm (last patient accepted at 10.00pm). Patients are treated in order of priority rather than order of attendance.

You can follow us on Twitter to keep up to date with our current waiting times.

We provide assessment and treatment for the following conditions:

  • Suspected broken limbs
  • Minor head injuries
  • Strains and sprains

  • Bites and stings
  • Minor scalds and burns
  • Ear and throat infections
  • Minor skin infections and rashes
  • Minor eye conditions
