- St Mary's Hospital, Parkhurst Road, Newport, Isle of Wight, PO30 5TG
The Beacon Health Centre has been redesigned into the Urgent Care Service (UCS) which is co-located with the Emergency Department at St Mary’s and treats urgent care needs.
Those attending the Urgent Care Service will have been advised to do so by a health professional – doctor, dentist, optician, pharmacist, nurse, paramedic, etc. – or the NHS 111 service. Those attending the Urgent Care Service, depending on their needs, will be seen by a nurse, a community practitioner or a GP. The Urgent Care Service will redirect individuals to other services where the individual does not have an urgent care need and their problem can be better dealt with by another service.
*From July 3, it will no longer be possible to see a GP at the Urgent Care Service between 8am and 6.30pm on weekdays.
At these times, people will need to make appointments with their GP practice.
