If you have an urgent care need, please contact the free NHS 111 service first and you will be directed to the most appropriate service for your health condition. If needed, NHS 111 will make an appointment for you at one of the Urgent Care Centres below just as you would do to see your own GP.

The below Urgent Care Centres are open Monday to Friday 10 am to 10 pm and from 8 am to 10 pm, Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays.

Pallion Health Centre, Hylton Road, Sunderland SR4 7XF

Houghton Primary Care Centre, Houghton-le-Spring, DH4 5HB

You can walk into Urgent Care Centres but calling NHS 111 is advised if you’re unsure of the best place to go for treatment.

Improving access to urgent health care and making sure patients get the right treatment, in the right time and at the right place for their specific health condition is one of their main priorities.

Dental Services in Sunderland

While living in the Sunderland area you may need to visit a dentist. 

You can find a Dentist using the NHS tool: https://www.nhs.uk/service-search/find-a-dentist 

There is no need to register with a dentist in the same way as with a GP because you are not bound to a catchment area. Dental surgeries will not always have the capacity to take on new NHS patients. You may have to join a waiting list, look for a different dentist who is taking on new NHS patients, or be seen privately.


Simply find a dental surgery that's convenient for you, whether it's near your home or work, and phone them to see if there are any appointments available.
