No appointment is necessary at either site and the service is available every day of the year from 7am to 10pm in both Runco​rn and Widnes.


Within each centre there is a 
range of diagnostic facilities including an x-ray department with extended opening hours and short-term observation bays. We aim to initially assess more than 95% of our patients in less than 15 minutes. 


The centres are kite marked by North West Ambulance service​, which means that if you call an ambulance but your condition is not life threatening, you may be taken to the UCC for treatment rather than to a local Accident and Emergency department.

On arrival you will be initially assessed to prioritise the urgency of your care. You will be seen by a Doctor or Clinical Nurse Practitioner to complete your care.


As with all emergency departments, patients are seen in a priority manner. The more urgent the condition is, the faster you are seen.
