Urgent care services

Our emergency department is just one of the urgent care services in Southampton. If you need medical attention but it is not life threatening, there are a number of other local NHS services to choose from. Selecting the right one will help you get the treatment you need faster.

As of February 2024, you can also get treatment for seven common conditions at your local pharmacy, without needing to see a GP or get a prescription.

Highly trained pharmacists will be able to assess and treat patients for

  • sinusitis
  • sore throat
  • earache
  • infected insect bite
  • impetigo
  • shingles
  • uncomplicated urinary tract infections in women (under the age of 65)
