BE equivalent of "urgent care ward"?

I can't use 'emergency room' because in the US, there's a difference between emergency rooms and urgent care wards. (Emergency rooms are required to attend to individuals in an emergency situation regardless of their insurance status; an urgent care ward is free to admit or deny patients that are not insured.) I did a quick Google search which gave me the option of 'acute assessment unit', although I didn't want to use it without making sure. If it helps, I'm applying to universities in the UK and I wanted to mention my summer working at the urgent care ward.
