Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust provides Urgent Care for people who experience a health need which requires urgent clinical attention, but not hospital admission.
Urgent Care is available at Urgent Care Centres, and when appropriate in your own home, allowing you to stay safely in your own home and providing peace of mind for your family.
You can access Urgent Care without an appointment at Urgent Care Centres by calling 111 – someone will advise you of your nearest service.
Home visits are usually by referral from 111, your GP or the East Midlands Ambulance Service when you have a short-term health crisis which can be safely managed in the comfort of your home. The Urgent Care practitioner will assess your situation, stabilise your condition, and get you comfortable so you can recover in your own home. They will ensure you have the necessary support and treatment in place, and make any further referrals as necessary. This means that you don’t have to have an unnecessary trip to hospital.
Care and support in prison
If someone who is in prison is having difficulty in carrying out any aspects of their daily living, they may require care and support, and may be entitled to an assessment of their needs. Since the implementation of the Care Act 2014, Adult Care has a responsibility to assess needs for prisoners in the same way that we assess the needs of people in the community. From that assessment, appropriate support is identified for any eligible needs.
