Vocare - South West region

South West

Through Bath and North East Somerset Doctors Urgent Care (BDUC), Vocare provides an integrated urgent care service for Bath, Keynsham & District, Midsomer Norton, Radstock & Chew Valley.

As part of the integrated model of care we operate an urgent care centre at the front of the Royal United Hospital Emergency Department. We also provide GP out-of-hours cover for the whole of Bath and North East Somerset and medical cover to Paulton Memorial Hospital and St Martin’s Hospital.

We operate a Homeless Healthcare Service at Julian House Hostel in Bath.

As Somerset Doctors Urgent Care (SDUC), from July 2015, Vocare began to deliver primary out-of-hours care in Somerset.

Vocare also manages the NHS 111 service in Somerset and Devon, and Cornwall in partnership with Kernow.
