What … 

...conditions or ailments do you treat in your Urgent Care services?

Our Walk-in Centres and Urgent Care Centres see patients with minor injuries and minor illnesses, who cannot wait to see their registered GP.

Minor illnesses include coughs, colds, cystitis, sore throats, ear aches, flu, rashes, allergies, diarrhoea, vomiting, stomach pains, emergency contraception etc.

Minor injuries include simple fractures (where X-ray available), minor burns, cuts, strains, sprains, bites, stings, wound dressings, minor eye injuries etc.

Please note that where we do not have X-ray facilities available we are unable to diagnose fractures. If one of our clinicians believes you need an X-ray they will ask you to return at a time when X-rays are available or refer you to another service for the X-ray.

What is…?

…the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and how are Urgent Care services regulated?

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent regulator of all health and social care services in England. The CQC’s job is to make sure that care provided by hospitals, dentists, ambulances, care homes and services in people’s own homes and elsewhere meets national standards of quality and safety.

All Greenbrook’s services are registered with and regulated by the CQC.
