Loughborough Urgent Care Centre
Located at Hospital Way, Loughborough, LE11 5JY
The Loughborough Urgent Care Centre (UCC) provides a dedicated 24 hour, 7 day a week, 52 weeks per year service. The UCC provides a timely treatment service for patients of all ages with less serious illness and injuries which require immediate care but do not require services of an Emergency Department (ED), providing unnecessary ED attendance. The UCC integrates minor injury services, offering X-ray facilities 7 days a week.
To ensure optimum care, the clinical team working within the UCC have access to 2 observation bays. These are used as ‘holding areas’ so that clinicians can spend more time observing patients or awaiting diagnostic testing if required in order to avoid an unnecessary admission into an acute hospital.
A&E is for life-threatening accidents and emergencies only. Before you go there, ask yourself, “Is it a real emergency?”
If not, please consider using other local health services before you visit A&E.
