Urgent care services open later on weekdays

Monday 31 May 2021: BHB today announces that the weekday hours of the Lamb Foggo Urgent Care Centre (UCC) are changing, and the service will be available later into the evening while maintaining the same number of open hours.

From Tuesday 1 June 2021, the UCC will open from 2pm to 10pm every weekday and public holiday. Previously opening at noon until 8pm, the later start maintains the number of hours the UCC is open, but provides a later service. Weekend hours will stay the same from 9am to 9pm. An x-ray service will be available while the UCC service is open on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. People can call the UCC at 298-7700 if they need to check the hours.

Dr Chikezie Dean Okereke, Chief of Emergency, comments: “These later opening times offer better coverage out of hours. It means we can be there later into the night for people with minor illnesses and injuries who need attention quickly, giving an alternative to waiting in the Emergency Department.”
