Melton Mowbray

There are two service options available in Melton Mowbray to support patients with their urgent care needs when their GP practice is closed, and they need urgent treatment, including cuts and minor injuries such as sprains. They are suitable for urgent care needs but not emergency attention.

Please use NHS 111 first

Always use NHS 111 (online, by phone or via the NHS App) if you need urgent care. They will ensure you receive the right care for your condition, in the right place and as quickly as possible. They will even arrange and appointment or arrival time slot. Help to keep Accident and Emergency free for life-threatening conditions by following this advice.

Melton Mowbray Urgent Care Centre

Treatment at Melton Mowbray Urgent Care Centre can be accessed by:

  • Visiting NHS 111 online or using the NHS App.
  • Calling NHS 111 if you do not have online access or for children under 5. 
  • Via referral from a GP practice, Clinical Navigation Hub or the Emergency Department.
  • You can use this service as a walk-in patient (without an appointment), but it is advisable to use NHS111 to ensure you are guided to the most appropriate service with a confirmed appointment time or arrival time slot. This will minimise your waiting time and, where walk-in availability is limited, it will avoid long waits or signposting to alternative services.


To ensure you receive the best treatment, the reception team will ask you a series of questions about your condition, to help provide the best clinical assessment.
