Urgent Primary Care Centres (UPCC)

Urgent Primary Care Centres (UPCC) do not operate as drop-in clinics. Please contact your GP practice in the first instance, they will determine if you are suitable for referral to the service. Patients presenting to Emergency Departments will be triaged in the usual manner with referral to the UPCC team if appropriate.

Urgent Primary Care Centres treat patients with urgent primary care needs on the same day, creating capacity to support GP surgeries and reducing unnecessary Emergency Department attendances. 

A team including Advanced Nurse Practitioners, GPs and Physiotherapists work together to provide care to people who have sought care from their GP or the Emergency Departments. 

Patients referred to the service will receive a telephone consultation with a UPCC Clinician. If appropriate patients may be invited to attend a face to face appointment at one of the UPCC locations. 

Conditions seen at the UPCC include: 

  • Abdominal pain*
  • Acute sinusitis
