How urgent care works

  • Do I need an appointment for urgent care? icon plus

    We do currently accept walk in appointments but we may need to swap this to pre-booked appointments during busy periods of service.

    To make an appointment at a HCA UK Urgent Care Centre, please call 020 3733 5849. Opening times will vary by centre, so please be sure to check the associated page for opening hours before visiting.

    You'll then be seen by one of our urgent care doctors, who will conduct a more thorough diagnostic examination and order any additional tests if required.

  • What if I need further treatment? icon plus

    Our urgent care doctors are able to cope with most conditions, successfully treating around 85% of patients immediately on-site. However, for those requiring further diagnostic tests, such as MRI or CT scanning, or further hospital treatment, we have a permanent rota of on-call consultants from multiple medical specialties who are available to provide care quickly.

    We are able to provide a consultant referral. From this point, costs can be covered by obtaining authorisation for use of private medical insurance. Alternatively, you can choose to self-pay.

Our urgent care expertise

When you visit an HCA UK Urgent Care Centre, you'll gain access to our world-class network of London private hospitals. All of our hospitals are equipped with the latest in diagnostic imaging technology and offer full access to pathology testing. 

Each hospital also offers full intensive care back-up (Level 3 critical care), including paediatric intensive care (PICU) at The Portland Hospital for Children. Each of our hospitals specialise in acute care, which provides you the reassurance that whether it is you or your loved ones who are under our care – you’re in safe hands from a consultant – in either an outpatient or inpatient setting.

Our price list is a guide to the costs of treatments carried out within the Urgent Care Centre, which are paid for on a self-funded basis. It is possible you may need one or several items from this list.

If you need further care via a consultant referral, the cost of ongoing care will be explained to you. At this stage, if you have private medical insurance, you will be able to seek authorisation for treatment.

It is also possible to self-pay for treatment in any of our hospitals, and pricing can be explained to you by our business offices.
