The way you can access on the day urgent care at the Health Centre is changing…..
On Monday 7th October we launch our new
URGENT CARE HUB
The Urgent Care Hub will be staffed by Advanced Clinical Practitioners (ACP’s), supported by our team of GP’s. The ACP’s are senior nurses or paramedics who can prescribe and who specialise in same day, acute medical conditions.
We have evaluated patient feedback and by making this change of service we will be able to offer more routine GP appointments, and also avoid the long wait time for patients to see a clinician during the walk in clinic.
To be assessed to attend an ‘on the day’ appointment at the URGENT CARE HUB please call the Health Centre main line 01608 642742 between 8.30am & 11.00 am Monday to Friday (commencing Monday 7th October).
The Urgent Care Hub will replace our current walk in clinic. Therefore we will no longer be accepting walk in patients.
Our Care Navigators at reception have been instructed to assess your medical need, please help us to help you by giving them the information they ask for so they can book the most appropriate appointment for you, first time.
If you wish to discuss the change to service or need more information please speak to one of our team.
Thank you for your support
Dr Jane Pargeter, GP Partner.
