The Hurley Group runs a number of services providing “urgent care” to patients who need to be seen but are unable to get an appointment at their own practice because it may be out of hours or they may have a minor illness or injury that requires immediate treatment. All the urgent care services are open seven days a week, often until late at night – one service is even open 24 hours a day.
Each year, we see approximately 300,000 urgent care cases per year and have recruited a large team of highly trained doctors and nurses who a experts in both minor injury and illness. All of our Urgent Care Centres have X-ray facilities as well as offering a range of other services including blood tests.
Each staff member working in urgent care has access to a number of benefits:
- Patient-focussed care – see and treat the presenting problem
- No QoF/LES/DES to worry about
- Paperwork minimal
- Large supportive MDT of GPs/ENPs/ED Doctors/Nurses
- Easy access to investigations within the UCC without needing referral
- Shifts to suit (4-8 hours)- shorter than a normal GP working day
- Good rates of pay
- Be instrumental in educating the local diverse population how to access care appropriately
