About this service

Our Urgent Care Centres (UCC’s) are located at St Mary’s, Charing Cross and Hammersmith hospitals. UCCs are run by experienced GPs and nurses with skills in urgent care. UCCs are for patients who cannot wait for a GP appointment, but do not need the emergency treatment provided by an emergency department.

UCCs are able to treat patients with minor illnesses and injuries who will usually go home after treatment. Adults and children can use the UCCs for:

  • Sprains and strains of ankles, wrists and knees
  • Minor burns of small areas
  • Cuts, including those that need stitches
  • Minor infections that GPs commonly treat, e.g. ear, nose, throat
  • Minor broken bones such as wrist, finger and collarbone
  • X-rays

In an emergency always dial 999.

An ambulance crew will start treating you as soon as they arrive and they will then take you to the right hospital for your condition, to ensure you get the best possible treatment.
