Urgent Care Centre reopens at Brants Bridge

The Urgent Care Centre at Brants Bridge, Bracknell, RG12 9RT  has now reopened to walk-in appointments for minor injuries (from Monday, 19th July, 2021). This means the Urgent Care Centre has now fully reinstated the full range of services for local people which were in place before the pandemic.

Many services had previously suspended walk-in appointments due to the pandemic to reduce the risks of Covid-19 to both patients and staff. 

If you are registered with a Bracknell Forest GP practice, or you are a Bracknell Forest resident, you can continue to access a booked appointment for minor illness through your GP practice, with appointments available at the Urgent Care Centre but also at other local sites. We would like to remind residents that they can also seek advice for minor conditions from your pharmacist, or from https://111.nhs.uk.

Wherever possible we would ask that residents call ahead and make an appointment via NHS 111 or through your GP practice for all the services at the Urgent Care Centre. This ensures that you will see the most appropriate person to meet your needs and enables us to maintain social distancing on the site.

To help you know where to go minor injuries include conditions such as the following:

·         Sprains and strains

·         Suspected broken limbs

·         Minor head injuries

·         Cuts and grazes

·         Bites and stings

·         Minor scalds and burns

·         Skin infections

Anyone with a life-threatening condition should call 999.

Dr Lalitha Iyer, Medical Director at NHS Frimley Clinical Commissioning Group, said: “We’re delighted that we are now in a position to reopen this service for both walk-in and booked appointments.”
