EBPC provide a range of different healthcare services such as out of hours doctors and nurses, emergency dentists, emergency eye treatment, urgent care centres, and walk in centres.
Primary care services are the first point of contact in the healthcare system. Primary care providers typically coordinate other specialist care that the patient may need. This can be from GPs, Nurse Practitioners or Pharmacists.
If you require urgent medical treatment- but it is not a life-threatening emergency when your doctor’s surgery is closed, then you should call 111. Your symptoms will be assessed by an NHS 111 operator, and you will be given the advice you need or directed to the most suitable local service. This could be an appointment with an out of ours doctor or at an urgent care centre, or they may suggest visiting a walk-in centre. Where possible the NHS 111 team will book you an appointment or transfer you directly to the people you need to speak to.
If it is a life-threatening emergency, please dial 999 and ask for an ambulance.
