Sheffield NHS Walk-In Centre will be open from 8am until 10pm daily over the festive period.

Managers of the centre, on Broad Lane, are urging people with minor injuries or ailments to call there rather than use hospital accident and emergency departments.

A spokesman said: “Christmas is a busy time for A&E. Minor burns, indigestion, bumps and scrapes, general unwellness and contraception requests can all be seen at our centre, leaving A&E staff free to deal with emergencies.”
