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.

The surgery offers appointments that are pre-bookable up to two weeks in advance. We will try to make appointments with the doctor of your choice but this may not always be possible.

If you need to be seen urgently please contact the surgery early as the doctor on call may need to make special arrangements to see you if all appointments are taken. If you are unable to keep an appointment please inform the surgery as soon as possible so that the appointment can be given to another patient. Failure to do so on more than one occasion, may result in you being asked to register with another surgery.

Appointments are for one patient and are 10 minutes duration.  Double appointments are available at the doctor’s discretion. Latecomers may be asked to make another appointment.

Language Interpreters

If a patient has difficulty speaking or understanding English, an interpreter can be booked in order to make consultations as clear as possible for both patient and doctor. Please request an interpreter when you book an appointment
