TEMPORARILY CLOSED DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC

The Lamb Foggo Urgent Care Centre (UCC) is designed to take care of those non-life threatening but urgent conditions, such as minor accidents or sudden illness, that happen unexpectedly.
You might need the UCC if you have a minor illness or injury that needs immediate attention, but is in no way life threatening and is not likely to need surgery or sophisticated diagnostic equipment. This means something like a bump, bruise, graze, cut, cough, cold or earache.
Urgent Care Centre Services
We provide you with assessment and treatment of minor illnesses and injuries, such as sprains, strains, scrapes, cuts, coughs, colds, earaches, bumps or bruises, with onsite access to X-rays.
Who you’ll find at the Urgent Care Centre
When the UCC is open in the evenings and weekends, there will be a trained physician, a registered nurse and diagnostic technologists.
Urgent Care is not Emergency Care!
If your injury or illness is serious or potentially life threatening, you should call an ambulance (911) or go straight to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital. The UCC has X-ray equipment and a small team including a doctor, nurses and diagnostic technologists. We can treat minor illnesses and injuries.
Only the hospital has sophisticated equipment to diagnose head injuries, clots, strokes, heart attacks and major trauma (road accidents), and the surgical support services that could save your life in a true emergency.
If you have any of the following, go straight to the Emergency Department or call an ambulance:
- You are injured and have a large gash or cut with a lot of blood
- You faint or have a head injury that knocks you out
- You are hurt in a motor vehicle accident
- You have chest pains
If you are very worried about any illness or injury, go to the hospital. If you think you need an ambulance, don’t hesitate to call 911.
