What are urgent care centres?
Urgent care centres are an alternative to A&E, treating both children and adults. Urgent care centres provide treatment for minor injuries and illnesses that are urgent but not life threatening for example:
Where’s my nearest UCC?
For most people in Ealing, the closest urgent care centre is based at Ealing Hospital, which also treats children 24/7.
(For children please note that there is not a children’s A&E at Ealing Hospital, should your child need more specialist care than the urgent care centre can provide, your child will be safely transferred with you to another hospital.)
There are also local urgent care centres at Northwick Park Hospital, Hillingdon Hospital and West Middlesex Hospital. They are all staffed by experienced GPs and nurses, healthcare assistants and other healthcare practitioners.
West Middlesex Hospital
Northwick Park Hospital
Ealing Hospital, West Middlesex Hospital and Northwick Park Hospital urgent care centres are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Which conditions are treated at UCCs?
The urgent care centre treats minor injuries and illnesses that require urgent treatment.
On arrival at the urgent care centre you will be assessed and treated in order of the priority of your condition.
This is an urgent care service and should only be used if you require urgent medical attention and cannot be seen by your registered GP.
