The provider for the Integrated Urgent Care (IUC) service covering NHS 111 and GP Out of Hours service in the Wisbech locality has changed.

Historically, HUC have provided Integrated Urgent Care (IUC) to all of the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG population, except for Wisbech. On Monday 7 October 2019, the Wisbech IUC service transferred to HUC under the wider Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Contract. Wisbech patients will receive the same service as all other patients within Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, including direct and easier access to the mental health Crisis First Response Service via NHS 111 option 2.

This change does not impact on the service patients receive, the service will remain the same. This includes a local OOHs base at North Cambs Hospital, and access to visiting GPs for home visits. Opening times, staffing numbers and skill mix all remain the same.

The NHS 111 element of the service will in the future be delivered from our local NHS 111 call centre in Peterborough.
