DHU Healthcare are a proud member of a national partnership that comprises urgent and integrated healthcare providers, covering almost two-thirds of the UK’s population.

About Urgent Health UK (UHUK)

Urgent Health UK (UHUK) is a collaborative platform that unites social enterprises dedicated to healthcare, supporting and working alongside NHS services. As a not-for-profit Community Interest Company, DHU Healthcare plays a crucial role within this consortium, delivering essential services such as 111, urgent treatment, virtual wards, community nursing, urgent and emergency out-of-hours care, and more to local and regional communities.

Our Commitment

Providing thousands of highly skilled, doctors, consultants, nurses, pharmacist, paramedics and other healthcare professionals to treat millions of patients every week, UHUK partners such as DHU Healthcare are a vital part of the wider healthcare system.

DHU Healthcare is the single largest provider of 111 services in the country accounting for almost 25% of all received calls, providing urgent and emergency care across the Midlands.

Stephen Bateman (Chief Executive of DHU Healthcare) said: “We’re delighted to be a part of this expansive collaboration to help shape and lead best practice in urgent and integrated care. We are an integral part of multiple regional health systems but don’t always get the same recognition as more established and traditional models of healthcare.

“We are the ones that provide advice over the phone at evenings, weekends or if you can’t get to a GP, if your loved one is ill or hurt and you don’t know what to do or where to go and our people are the ones who come to treat you in your own home if you can’t get to a hospital or clinic. As a partnership and a collaborative, we can become stronger and be in a better position to continue doing that and provide that support to ensure the wider health system can become more efficient and cope with increasing demand.

“By continuing to provide these services and supporting our health partners, we can help to make sure you get the right care you need in the right place. The work we do frees up time for A&E, GPs and Ambulance Services to direct their resources into their area of expertise so that we have a health system that works for you, the patient. We’re proud to be working with the UHUK family providing this level of care and support to our people and patients.”
