Hereford County Hospital is to get a purpose-built £1.5m walk-in health centre.
NHS Herefordshire and Hereford Hospitals NHS Trust will build it next to the city's accident and emergency (A&E) department.
Health bosses said it would reduce the pressure on A&E and would be easy for people to find.
It will open in 2011 and replace the temporary walk-in service which opened at an Asda supermarket in December.
Patients will be able to use the new services while remaining registered with their own GP.
They will be able to visit the centre without an appointment and see a GP or nurse seven days a week between 8am and 8pm.
It is hoped the centre will treat around 20,000 people a year who would normally go to A&E with minor problems.
It will mean the end of plans to place it in the grounds of the Stonebow psychiatric unit near the hospital, which had sparked protests.
