Health help available 24 hours a day in Welwyn Hatfield
Do you know the best place to get help when you have an urgent health concern?
The Urgent Care Centre at the New QEII Hospital in Welwyn Garden City is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Urgent Care Centre can treat lots of health problems, such as burns, scalds, sprains, minor cuts and suspected broken bones; but it isn’t the right place for everyone and there is a more limited service staffed by nurses after 11pm. If you’re unsure about whether the Urgent Care Centre can help, please call NHS 111 before you travel. Calls to NHS 111 are free from any phone.
NHS 111 is available 24/7 over the phone and online. Trained advisers will ask you questions about your symptoms. Depending on your health need, they will give you advice, may put you in touch with a doctor or nurse over the phone, or make you an overnight or weekend appointment with a GP at the New QEII Hospital, if you are assessed as needing one. They have all the health information at their fingertips and will know the best place for you to receive care.
