Urgent Care Centre at Queen Elizabeth Hospital

The Urgent Care Centre (UCC) at Queen Elizabeth Hospital is open 24/7 and treats patients with minor injuries and illnesses such as infections, sprains or bites.

The unit treats patients with less serious injuries that are not critical or life-threatening but still require urgent attention. The UCC does not have an appointment system - it is a walk-in service.


Location

The Urgent Care Centre is next to the Emergency Department and the X-Ray Department.


What services do we provide?

We will see and treat minor illness and injuries in both adults and children, for example:

  • Fever and infections
  • Sprains
  • Scalds and burns
  • Minor cuts, bites or stings
  • Fractures

The UCC works closely with the Emergency Department. When you come in you will be assessed using our streaming/triaging system to see what priority your treatment should be given and who would be the best person to see you.
