Vocare - Leicestershire and Rutland region

East Midlands

In April 2015, Vocare began managing a new urgent care service covering the east of the county and Rutland.

The service allows minor injuries and illnesses to be treated locally – either in GP surgeries or urgent care centres. It aims to reduce the time it takes for patients to be seen and treated.

Vocare delivers urgent care for minor injuries and illnesses from 34 GP practices across the region and urgent care centres in Oadby, Oakham, Market Harborough and Melton Mowbray.
