LOCAL SUPPORT - SELF REFERRAL

local URGENT TREATMENT CENTRES (WALK-IN CENTRES OR MINOR INJURY UNITS)

Some urgent treatment centres require a booked appointment through 111 and some you may be able to book an appointment directly with the service.

However it is always worth contacting 111 as they can book you an appointment at the closest open urgent treatment centre (walk-in centre or minor injury unit), and also if they consider the condition is more serious direct you to A&E.

The NHS suggests

The urgent treatment centre for Buckinghamshire is based at Wycombe Hospital, but if 111 direct you to an urgent treatment centre it may be outside Buckinghamshire particularly if you live on the boundaries of Buckinghamshire.
