Your local Urgent Care Centre is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week including weekends and bank holidays. The address is University Hospital of Hartlepool, Holdforth Road, Hartlepool TS24 9AH. They will see anyone who has had a recent injury. They can bandage and stitch wounds, x-ray limbs. They can supply some medication for infections, pain and allergic type reactions. They can also give advice about treatments and further care.
Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
