Intercare Urgent Care Offers A Life-Saving Opportunity


Emergencies happen out of nowhere. They tend to be totally unexpected and sometimes assistance is not as immediate or available as we would like it to be. Who wants to sit in an overcrowded hospital ER waiting to be tended to? Certainly not us. So, if you want immediate treatment for those urgent but not life-threatening emergencies without the tedious waiting, visit an Intercare Urgent Care Centre. All you have to do is walk in. Plus, they’re giving away an extensive First Aid Course to one lucky reader. Keep reading to find out how to enter. 

The Doctor Will See You Now

When you need urgent medical treatment, it is important that you receive the right care, in the right place, first time. While your primary GP is the best place to start when you’re sick or hurt, there are occasions when they’re not available. Up until quite recently, the ER was then your only other option. Problem is, the modern-day emergency room is a busy place. This has multiple effects, including poor patient outcomes, prolonged pain, patient dissatisfaction, patients leaving without being seen and increased frustration among medical staff.

That’s where urgent care centres come in. They bridge the gap between hospital emergency rooms and doctor’s rooms by offering patients walk-in care and immediate treatment of urgent, but not life-threatening emergencies. At urgent care centres, you can see a care provider without an appointment. Also, urgent care centres typically offer extended hours, because they understand situations requiring medical attention don’t always occur during business hours.
