The service is provided by Hertfordshire Urgent Care (HUC) with telephone calls managed by NHS111.  HUC will let us know of any out of hours contacts so that we can update our patients’ records accordingly.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and/or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.

Urgent Treatment Centre (UTC)

Urgent Treatment Centres provide medical help when it’s not a life-threatening emergency. They are usually overseen by doctors working with nurses. If you need one, you can get tests like an ECG, bloods or x-ray. They are able to diagnose and manage many of the problems people go to A&E for e.g:

  • Coughs, colds and breathing problems
  • High temperature in children and adults
  • Injuries, cuts and bruises
  • Mental health concerns
  • Skin infections and rashes
  • Sprains and strains
  • Stomach pain
  • Suspected broken bones
  • Injuries, cuts and bruises
  • Vomiting and diarrhoea
  • Wound dressing

If a doctor decides you need a prescription, they can organise one for you. Emergency contraception is also available. For further information, see the following links:
