The next step up from Urgent Care is Emergency Care. Emergency Care is provided by the Emergency Department at St. Mary’s or by calling a 999 ambulance. The Emergency Department and 999 are for life threatening situations e.g. major trauma or loss of blood, unconsciousness, chest pain, etc.
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. – 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.
It can be extremely stressful when your child is unwell. Not only is it hard to find reliable information, it is often difficult to know if your child needs to be seen by a healthcare professional, and if so, how urgently. The resources on the Healthier Together website have been developed by healthcare professionals from across Dorset, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. You’ll find clear information on common childhood illnesses, including advice on what ‘red-flag’ signs to look out for, what you should do to keep your child comfortable, how long your child’s symptoms are likely to last and where to seek help.

Mental Health conditions are very common, affecting a significant proportion of the population at any one time. Up to one in four consultations with GPs relate to mental health issues. People with mental illness often also experience physical health problems and generally find it more difficult to choose healthier lifestyles. As such the NHS Trust provides a variety of Mental Health services for adults and children, both in community and in-patient facilities. A new Facebook page has been set up which will share information about its services, signpost and offer self-help tips and begin to create an Island mental health community.
