Call CAV 24/7 for urgent and out of hours care

What is CAV 24/7?

CAV 24/7 is a new and innovative approach to how patients access urgent care, the main message being: phone first for urgent and out of hours care.

Traditionally patients have been able to access our Emergency Unit and services by walking in and the "phone first" system replaces this. Patients will be encouraged to phone ahead first, and if appropriate will be given an appointment slot saving them precious time and also NHS resources.

The CAV 24/7 number is also for those who wish to speak to the Urgent Primary Care Out of Hours service if they believe their condition cannot wait until their GP practice is next open. The Urgent Primary Care Out of Hours service operates during the times when your GP practice is closed.
