This app helps you to choose the best NHS A&E or Walk-in centre for your circumstances. It will allow you to search for local NHS sites, either by postcode, phone location or device location. The Wait Times for each site are displayed in the app. You can tap on sites for more information such as treatments offered, parking and opening times.
The app can also help you in locating and navigating to nearby NHS sites.
The main function of the app is the provision of the latest known waiting time estimations to help you in making an informed choice on an appropriate NHS Site to visit.
This application provides the latest known waiting time estimations which are obtained directly from the NHS sites displayed. The wait time is only an indicative time we would expect to wait at each organisation and this time is subject to change at any time. Due to the varying urgencies and unpredictable volume of patients attending A&E and Urgent Care centres these times cannot be guaranteed. Wait time refresh frequencies differ between sites and therefore the last refresh time should be noted and considered when selecting a site.
All information contained within this application is for information only. No guarantees are made that the information contained within this application or linked web-sites is accurate, complete and current at any given time. Information presented on this application or associated sites are subject to change at any time.
This application is not intended in any way to replace the advice of your doctor or any other health care professional. Specific advice should be sought in specific situations from a properly qualified health worker.
