Urgent Care 24 (UC24) is the established local provider of GP Out of Hours Services to the residents of Knowsley, Liverpool and Halton with a patient population of approx. 750,000. They believe that delivering services across the whole of the 3 CCGs provides an exciting opportunity to transform patient care. They have provided out of hours services locally since November 2004 and are proud of their record of compliance against the National Quality Requirements.
Their GP-led model of care has attracted national attention and has influenced service provision in other areas. They have developed a greater understanding and experience of providing Primary Care Services since 2009 to the Initial Accommodation Asylum Seekers who arrive in Liverpool.
UC24 are working closely with commissioners to transform the urgent care landscape and are providing a growing number of day-time services to support pressures in primary care and with the Northwest ambulance service. They are also working in partnership with other social enterprise GP out of hours providers towards the re-procurement of 111.
