BLACKPOOL URGENT CARE
Urgent Care – Lancashire
The Urgent Care business unit is one of the largest and the longest running within FCMS, originating from the Out of Hours GP co-operative formulated in 1994.
The unit has grown to include a portfolio of urgent care services across multiple geographical locations which include GP Out of Hours, Urgent Treatment Centres, Health Centres, Care Co-ordination Services, and an Emergency Care Practitioner service. Furthermore, we are extremely proud that Blackpool Urgent Treatment Centre is the only pilot site for NHS Pathways Reception Point; FCMS is pioneering non-clinician led triage and assessment using this clinical decision making tool.
Our High Intensity User Service targets those most vulnerable in our society who reach out to emergency services such as 999 and A&E. This service supports these individuals, addressing the underlying causes, taking a humane, non-punitive approach that wraps around the individuals and meet their unique needs
