Care UK are the largest independent provider of NHS Services in the country, delivering over 70 services throughout the UK. Care UK currently provides over 20 out-of-hours services across England. The out-of-hours services are for patients with an urgent need who cannot wait until surgery opening hours, and they operate Monday to Friday from 6.30pm to 8.30am, and for 24 hours at weekends and during bank holidays. The majority of the time, access to our out-of-hours service is via NHS 111. Patients are assessed and triaged over the phone, and may, at that point, be referred to the out of hours service. Our other healthcare services include treatment centres, GP Practices, NHS walk-in-centres, GP out-of-hours, prison health services and clinical assessment & diagnostic facilities. We work with the NHS to take healthcare services closer to where people live and work – increasing the efficiency and quality of the services we deliver and helping to reduce waiting times. We assess, diagnose and treat more than one million NHS patients every year, providing services which are free at the point of use.
