Out Of Hours

From 6.00pm - 8.30am each evening, plus all day Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays.

The Health and Social Care Board (HSCB) is responsible for providing out-of-hours care in our area and has commissioned Western Urgent Care to provide this service. This service is for emergencies only.
The service is normally based in the Outpatients Department at Altnagelvin Hospital but during the COVID-19 pandemic has temporarily relocated to Great James Street Health Centre and patients may be asked to go there to be seen.

It is essential that patients ring Western Urgent Care before attending at the out-of-hours base.
The number is: (028) 7186 5195.

Please remember, this is an emergency service.
There is a limited number  of doctors on-call covering the city at any one time.
It is important therefore that non-urgent calls should NOT be made to this out-of-hours service.
