Most vet practices will be able to see injured wild pigeons. If you call your nearest practice they should be able to tell you where and when the pigeon can be dropped off. The vet will decide what treatment is appropriate depending on the severity of the injury.
I don’t think the RSPCA currently have the resources to send someone out overnight.
I hope this helps answer your question.
