Urgent Care Service (UCS) (formerly Beacon Health Centre) 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. 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. *Please note that it is no longer 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.

The Shen Clinic We are not medical doctors, but In many ways we see people for the same or similar reasons and conditions that you would see your GP and that is for a very broad and diverse range of problems with an emphasis on chronic conditions and illnesses. There is no doubt that Orthodox medicine has made incredible progress in dealing with acute conditions such as heart attacks, strokes and life-saving surgery, but many would agree that orthodox medicine is lacking when it comes to addressing many chronic conditions for which in the main it can only offer drugs, and these drugs often bring damaging if not fatal side-effects.
