Answered on

20 November 2017

The Next Steps on the NHS Five Year Forward View set out our intention for the ‘roll-out of standardised new urgent treatment centres’. Urgent treatment centres are community and primary care facilities providing access to urgent treatment for a local population, and will build upon the current range of services such as Walk-in Centres, Urgent Care Centres and Minor Injury Units.

Decisions on specific centres are made at a local level, in line with the Five Year Forward View.
