Demands on Accident and Emergency departments have been steadily increasing year on year, we wanted to speak with patients to discover their reasons for attending UECC and what alternative options they have considered.

The most common reason was that the patient thought that they needed treatment from UECC or needed an x-ray. These patients had not consulted any alternative healthcare prior to attending UECC.

The second most common reason was the lack of access to GP appointments.
