The Out-of-Hours service operates from 6.00pm to 8.30am daily, plus all day Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays.
The Strategic Planning & Performance Group (SPPG) 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 Urgent & Emergency care only.
The service is based in the Outpatients Department at Altnagelvin Hospital 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 Urgent/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.
