Malton, Norton & District Hospital League of Friends



Feb 03


‘Urgent care’ is for a sudden illness or injury that needs treating fast, but is not considered to be a 999 emergency. You do not need an appointment to access an urgent care service. Urgent care services should not be used to treat minor symptoms that could wait to be treated by your own GP, pharmacist or even yourself using over the counter medicines.


The current urgent care services in Scarborough and Ryedale that are included in this review include:


  • GP out-of-hours service
  • Walk-in service at Castle Health Centre
  • Malton Minor Injuries Unit (MIU)


We want to improve the way that urgent care services are provided in the Scarborough and Ryedale area by creating a new, integrated urgent care service. To help us develop our plans, we want you to read our ‘Right care, first time’ document and then complete our online survey.

We are also holding a series of public events for you to come and find out more and have your say – details of which are in the table below:
