Urgent and Emergency Care (UEC)

Urgent and Emergency Care (UEC) services perform a critical role in keeping the population healthy. The NHS responds to more than 110 million urgent calls or visits every year, so it is essential that the system works effectively.

Both urgent and emergency care services play a specific part in supporting patients to receive the right care, by the right person, as quickly as possible.

Support for newborn babies and families

After a child has been born your GP and NHS midwifery (opens new window) service will be your key contacts initially, you can read more about the journey up till birth on the NHS: Pregnancy (opens new window) pages.

In Wiltshire you can also be supported by the Health Visiting service who will help ensure the best start in life for your child.

Early recognition

As your child develops you may notice they need more support with certain activities or may seem to be developing more slowly in certain areas. It is important to discuss this with the health professionals you regularly check in with like your GP or health visitors, they may suggest contacting one of the following teams. You may also want to look into the EHC assessments which includes an Early Support Hub in its process.

Early support

It is hugely beneficial to get support as early as possible once a need has been identified. This helps prepare a child for the next steps in their journey in life and learning in the best possible way.
