Western Urgent Care (WUC) provides GP OOH services across the WHSCT area which covers the counties of Derry, Tyrone and Fermanagh. We cover a range of urban and rural areas across five clinical bases and for a population of approximately 300,000 patients. This will include a small number of patients from the Republic of Ireland living along the border areas.
We also provide GP OOH support for a small number of hospices and palliative care wards within the local area. This work compliments the Marie Curie Service we host providing Nurses to patients on the Palliative Care Pathway during the out of hours period.
