There is now an Urgent Primary Care Service at Solihull Hospital. This service began on Saturday 29 October 2016.
This service brings together all the urgent care services under one roof within the hospital following the closure of the temporary Walk-in Centre building.
The Urgent Primary Care Service is open for patients with urgent problems on a walk in basis 8:00am until 8:00pm seven days a week. It is accessed via a reception at the front of the hospital alongside the Minor Injuries Unit.
Patients may prefer to call 111 in the first instance for advice, as there are alternatives available in the community as well as access to clinicians for advice on specific concerns and at times booking into urgent services. The service is also integrated with the GP Out of Hours service.
The service does not replace the usual services offered by your registered General Practitioner including vaccinations, medical certificates, blood tests or longer-term care of medical problems.
REMEMBER: If you have an illness that is not life threatening, ask your pharmacist or contact your registered GP surgery first. If you are not sure what to do you can ring NHS 111 by dialing 111, which can give you advice or direct you to the best local service to treat your illness or injury, 24 hours a day seven days a week.
This plan is at the heart of Solihull Together for better lives, a partnership of Heart of England Foundation Trust, Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health Foundation Trust, Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council, Solihull CCG, local GP primary care and the voluntary sector.
