When We Are Closed
Call 111 when it's a concern, but less urgent than 999.
The NHS non-emergency number.
111 is the NHS non-emergency number. It's fast, easy and free. Call 111 and speak to a highly trained adviser, supported by healthcare professionals. NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.
The local Out of Hours service is contracted by Southampton City Clinical Commissioning Group and you can write to them at: Southampton City Clinical Commissioning Group, NHS Commissioning HQ, Oakley Road, Southampton SO16 4GX.
Urgent Treatment Centre (Southampton)
Urgent Treatment Centres are for non-emergency injuries and illnesses. Getting treated at an UTC helps free up Southampton’s Emergency Department to deal with treatment for those who need it the most. Do not call first, just turn up in person for physical injuries such as cuts, grazes, sprains and small fractures - you do not need an appointment and more often than not you may be treated far quicker than going to A&E.
Monday - Friday: 7.30am - 10.00pm
Weekends and Bank Holidays: 8.00am - 10.00pm
No appointments required
Based at the Royal South Hants Hospital, Level B, Brintons Terrace, Southampton, Hampshire, SO14 OYG
Tel: 0333 999 7613
