Vocare is a leading provider of outsourced quality clinical healthcare services in the UK. We deliver safe and efficient clinical healthcare services in the community in close collaboration with the NHS.

Our priority is to improve access to urgent healthcare and ensure patients receive the right level of care for their needs. We believe innovation and a true partnership with the NHS are the keys to a quality and integrated service.

With our headquarters in North East England, we began operating as Northern Doctors Urgent Care (NDUC) in 1996, before expanding our operations in Staffordshire, trading as Staffordshire Doctors Urgent Care (SDUC) in 2012. This was followed by Bath and North East Somerset, trading as Bath and North East Somerset Doctors Urgent Care (BDUC), in 2014. We then expanded to Yorkshire, Somerset and East Leicestershire and Rutland in 2015, trading as Yorkshire Doctors Urgent Care (YDUC), Somerset Doctors Urgent Care (SDUC) and East Leicestershire and Rutland Urgent Care (ELRUC) respectively.

Today we deliver GP out-of-hours and urgent care services to more than 4.5 million patients nationally.

We believe that our role is to deliver quality care and support the NHS in improving efficiencies and services.
