Getting to us
Leicester Royal Infirmary is close to Leicester city centre. The hospital has approximately 890 beds and provides Leicestershire’s only accident and emergency service (our Emergency Department). It is the base for our Children's Hospital as well as an Urgent Care Centre (UCC).
The centre offers an alternative for people who need to see a GP urgently at evenings and weekends, and who can't wait until they can go to their own doctor.
You can find the centre close to the emergency department (ED). When facing the ED, the children's emergency department is to your left and the main entrance to the hospital is on the right. Go through the main entrance to the hospital (Balmoral building) and the Urgent Care Centre is on the right. It is signposted both from the ED and from Infirmary Square.
When should you go to the Urgent Care Centre rather than the ED?
Opening times 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
