What’s the difference between emergency and urgent care
Emergency care is provided in a medical emergency, when life or long term health is at risk, for example, such as fractures and head injuries, serious injury or bleeding, severe breathing difficulties, heart attacks etc.
Urgent care is either based on a hospital site or stand-alone in the community. It provides patients with urgent advice or treatment in cases that are not life-threatening or life-changing.
