About Urgent Care
Our Integrated Urgent Care Centres are open 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, providing GP Out of Hours, Walk-In and Minor Injury support to the local population.
The team is GP-led, but includes a number of healthcare professionals, including Healthcare Assistants, Nurses, Minor Injury specialists and Advanced Practitioners (Paramedics).
We do encourage patients to call NHS 111 before attending as they will be able to book you an appointment wit the appropriate clinician and reduce waiting times.
History of Urgent Care
In partnership with the University Hospital of North Tees and Hartlepool Foundation Trust and the North East Ambulance Service, we designed and launched the Integrated Urgent Care Centres in April 2017.
Since then, it has become an indispensable service in the local health infrastructure and sees thousands of patients a month for a range of issues.
