Ealing GP Access Centres
Reception can book you to be seen at a local practice that is open during evenings and weekends, in order to achieve 08:00 – 20:00 access to primary care. This service enables patients to receive access to primary care services in in their locality, but not necessarily at their usual GP practice.
Urgent Care Centres (UCCs)
You can go to the UCCs for minor illnesses and injuries that are urgent but not life-threatening.
You do not need an appointment.
Urgent Care Centres (UCCs) are run by experienced GPs and nurses with skills in urgent care. UCCs are for patients who cannot wait for a GP appointment, but do not need the emergency treatment provided by an A&E.
Adults and children can use the UCCs for:
- Sprains & strains of ankles wrists and knees
- Minor burns of small areas
- Cuts, including those that need stitches
- Minor infections that GPs commonly treat, e.g. ear, nose and throat
The nearest Urgent Care Centres (UCCs) are at:
- Ealing Hospital
- Hillingdon Hospital
- Northwick Park Hospital
- Central Middlesex Hospital
- West Middlesex Hospital
