Really Useful Maps is a collection of online maps populated with Points of Interest Data covering a range of subjects. These topics have been selected either because they are not covered elsewhere, not displayed in map format anywhere else, or have not been comprehensively addressed in other publications.
In some cases we can offer a customised version of the map. In addition some of the maps are available as an iphone/ipad app or the database is available in a CSV file, enabling either direct upload to Sat Nav devices or easily convertible into the appropriate file format. Click on the titles to be taken to the respective map.
Map detailing the location and details of A&E Depts, Minor Injuries Units, Walk in Centres and Urgent Care Centres throughout the UK.

This information should also prove to be of great benefit when travelling in unfamiliar parts of the country. Also available as an App:
The GPS feature on the App shall automatically identify your location wherever you are, display the nearest facilities and route you to them (No Internet Access Required). However, I’m afraid that the App does not feature any angry birds, balloons to pop or involve finding cartoon characters, it nevertheless is probably the most practical peace of mind app you could ever have.
