How to access the service

This is a walk-in service where patients can self-refer.

Minor Illness Hub and Extended Access

We are working with the Clacton GP Alliance to deliver a Minor Illness Hub and GP extended opening hours. In order to deliver this service, your GP may be able to offer you an appointment here at the Minor Illness Hub which is located alongside our Minor Injuries Unit.

To ensure that the healthcare professional can effectively treat you, they will need access to your full medical record. Therefore, you will be asked for your permission to share your information at the time of booking your appointment. For further details on this, please ask at our reception or at your own GP practice.

Minor Illness Hub appointments could be for a GP, nurse practitioner or a healthcare assistant. They are pre-bookable only through your GP practice if registered at one of the Clacton GP Alliance practices or by calling 111 at the weekend.
