Not all illnesses or injuries that require urgent attention are life threatening. That’s why we provide a range of urgent healthcare services to make sure the right help is available when you need it.
We’re proud to have been providing NHS services for over 25 years. Across the whole of the UK, approximately 50% of ambulance call outs are unnecessary, and over nine million people are sent home from A&E having only needed advice. Our services are designed to relieve some of the pressure on the emergency care sector by assessing and helping patients and giving them the appropriate care they need.
We have a team of around 1,200 people working hard around the clock, providing a range of urgent care across Kent, Sussex, Essex, and Norfolk and Waveney.
And because we’re a social enterprise, you can be assured that our focus is on quality of care, not on profit.
Your experience using integrated urgent care (IUC) services is displayed in the graphic below. Your journey through the urgent care service should always start by calling NHS 111 to have your needs assessed. However, depending on the nature of your condition, you might be diverted out of the urgent care system to other parts of the health service that are not provided by IC24, such as hospital care.
