Urgent Care Centre at Queen Elizabeth
The Urgent Care Centre (UCC) at Queen Elizabeth Hospital is open 24/7 and treats patients with minor injuries and illnesses, such as infections, sprains or bites.
It is a walk-in service staffed by GPs working alongside specialist nurses.
The unit will usually treat patients with less serious injuries that still require urgent attention but are not critical or life-threatening more quickly than the Emergency Department.
The Urgent Care Centre is based at QEH, Woolwich and is next to the Emergency Department and the X-Ray Department.
The UCC does not have an appointment system, it is a walk-in service but you can call to check the current waiting times.

What services do we provide?
We will see and treat minor illness and injuries in both adults and children, for example:
- Fever and infections
- Scalds and burns
- Minor cuts, bites or stings
The UCC works closely with the Emergency Department. When you come in you will be assessed using our streaming/triaging system to see what priority your treatment should be given and who would be the best person to see you.
