Urgent Treatment Centre

The Urgent Treatment Centre at the Hospital of St Cross, Rugby, delivers a service through which patients can access some of the urgent care services they may need. This service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Patients over the age of five with minor injuries and illnesses can attend the Urgent Treatment Centre, where trained nursing staff will undertake an assessment and give advice and treatment. Patients are able to have X-rays, blood tests and a pharmacy is available.
Injuries illnesses we treat include small wounds, vomiting and diarrhoea, animal bites/stings, sports injuries, minor burns, tetanus immunisations, suspected broken bones, skin conditions (including minor rashes) and ear and throat infections.
Patients with complex medical conditions, trauma (severe injury), surgical conditions or those requiring advanced tests and investigations will be referred from the Urgent Treatment Centre or taken by ambulance to be cared for by specialists at University Hospital, Coventry.
The Urgent Treatment Centre does not have the specialist doctors and nurses on site 24 hours a day to be able to care for adults or children who are very sick.
You can attend the centre or you may be referred to us by another healthcare professional. Anyone with severe illness or injury should go directly to University Hospital , Coventry, or dial 999 for an ambulance.
