NHS England & NHS Improvement North West (Cheshire & Merseyside) have confirmed the provision of several designated urgent care sites across the Cheshire & Merseyside region.
The service is restricted to non-aerosol generating procedures so any referrals will be likely to result in either antibiotic prescription, analgesic management or extraction only. Patients will not be offered any alternative treatment.
In the event of a patient requiring a referral to one of these urgent care centres, an on-line referral is required, which needs to be completed by the dentist. Patients will be contacted by the urgent care centre and directed to the site nearest to their address.
