Derby Urgent Care Centre - Changes


From 1 November 2018, Derby Urgent Care Centre (DUCC) will be operating a nurse-led model of care for patients in Derbyshire. All current services will remain the same however patients will no longer be seen by a GP. Patients will be seen and treated by a range of clinicians including Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP) who will be able to prescribe and offer advice and support to patients. ANPs will be able to make clinical decisions and if they need to, they will seek advice from an on-call GP via telephone where necessary. All patients will be triaged by a nurse and then prioritised for treatment.


The CCG will be working closely with One Medical Group (OMG) to minimise the impact. There will also be a three month review to support the transition.

Clinic Sessions and Specialist Services

home_visit1Anyone attending a clinic will first have been assessed by their GP and then referred to the specific clinic. The doctor will give you details of the clinic and ask you to arrange an appointment time. Unfortunately it isn’t possible for people to turn up at a clinic without prior appointment.

All clinics are by appointment only: please enquire at reception for times of appointments with:

  • Cryotherapy: as arranged by the doctor
  • Diabetes: as arranged by the practice nurse
  • Asthma: as arranged by the practice nurse

Adult Immunisation programme

Tetanus and polio immunisation is recommended. If you have never been immunised please contact the surgery to make an appointment to see the nurse. If you are travelling abroad please telephone the surgery and make an appointment with the nurse in order to work out a vaccination programme. This appointment should be made at least two months prior to travelling. Not all vaccinations are available at the surgery but the nurse will be happy to advise.

 pregnant10Antenatal Care

Appointments with the midwife are no longer available at either surgery as all antenatal care is now based at Beckett Children’s Centre, Stockbrook Street, Derby where care for all our patients is now provided. After a positive pregnancy test you will be advised how to contact the centre. 

Postnatal Care

Once the baby has been delivered the mother can expect post-natal care at home from the midwife. At a post-natal appointment when baby is 6 weeks old, the doctor and nurse will check that both mother and baby are doing well. At the same time the child’s immunisation programme will be established. Please remember, if you haven’t already, to bring baby’s registration forms and your red book.
