Service Changes – in response to Covid-19 – St Charles Health & Wellbeing Centre

St Charles Urgent Care Centre

Due to the rapid development of Covid-19, the NHS in North West London and Central London Community Healthcare Trust have taken the decision to temporarily suspend the St Charles Urgent Care Centre service from Tuesday 14th April. 

The number of people attending the centre has reduced dramatically over recent weeks in line with Government guidance and people avoiding social contact. Staff will be redeployed to support the Covid-19 response, providing clinical support and care for our most vulnerable patients.

How will people know about the temporary suspension?

  • Signage will be placed on the door of the St Charles Urgent Care Centre informing people of the closure and alternative services available
  • NHS 111 will be informed that the centre is not currently available and patients should be directed to their GP Practice or referred to alternative services
  • GPs will text patients informing them of the temporary closure, and if they need medical help to visit 111.nhs.uk, call their GP practice or 111
  • Further information can be found on the CCG and local GP practice websites
