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.

Test Results

blood_tests_4We now have to perform many more tests than we used to, either to investigate a medical problem or to monitor treatment. Obviously we cannot notify everyone of their results so it is important for you to contact the surgery for them. The best time to ring is after 2pm.

The doctors see all results and indicate on the computer whether you should speak to the doctor directly or make an appointment. Nearly all blood tests, microbiology (swabs, urine tests and pregnancy tests) are back within a week; routine X-rays/scans take three weeks, tests for fungal nail infections at least four weeks and smears 6-8 weeks.

The surgery will only contact you if the result requires urgent attention. Routine test results can wait for your booked appointments (such as people attending the diabetic clinic).

For confidentiality reasons, we will not give results to anyone but the patient. The only exceptions would be if a patient rings for their child, or a carer for an elderly person or someone with severe mental health problems.
