UHUK Team and Members

Urgent Health UK is the federation of Social Enterprise Unscheduled Primary and Community Care Providers committed to providing the highest quality of care for patients.

Through our members we are the largest player in the medical out-of-hours services market and also provide many other services including urgent care centres, emergency and community dental services and a wide range of community based health and social care services.

Urgent Health UK validates the quality of care of each member organisation by requiring it to participate in an annual external audit. Results are shared with members to encourage and promote best practice. (See Quality Standards).
