Oxleas is now on Twitter. Follow @OxleasNHS for the latest trust news, information and guidance. On Monday 19 March we will tweeting all day from the Urgent Care Centre (UCC) at Queen Mary's Hospital in Sidcup.

The UCC is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. People with illness or minor injuries can walk in for treatment. Using twitter we hope to produce a fascinating insight into a day in the life of the UCC.

There have been instances where people have attended the UCC for treatment of more serious conditions than they are able to help with. When this happens the person is transferred to A&E at another hospital. The UCC team there are keen to promote awareness of the service and help people understand when they should go to UCC.

Urgent Care Centre for urgent not critical care.
