Ponteland Road Health Centre offers non-appointment access to treatment of minor illnesses, injuries and ailments. The Urgent Treatment Centre is for minor illness and injury. It is available 8am to 8pm every day of the year.
There are no booked appointments for the Urgent Treatment Centre. When you arrive, go to reception and say you have come to use the treatment centre. The receptionist will ask you to complete a form and then ask you to take a seat. Be sure to let her/him know if you feel your condition is too urgent to wait a few minutes.
