About

What is Urgent Care Durham?

The Urgent Care Durham (UCD) is your local urgent care clinic supported and staffed by Durham Doctors and Nurse Practitioners. Our vision is to help you get the “right care at the right place” whether it be by phone, video or in one of local clinic partners. The pandemic has changed the way we all receive our medical care. Virtual urgent care can be convenient but needs to be comprehensive. Appropriate referrals and follow up are often missed with episodic care. The UCD is working with local clinics to ensure your care stays close to home whether by a specialist or allied health team. If you are not connected yet with a regular family doctor, UCD will work with you till we ensure a sign over to a suitable physician taking new patients in your local area. We are also working with the local hospital system (Lakeridge Health) to refer you to the Emergency room and forward all your reports if their expertise is needed with a friendly handover.

Background

Urgent Care Durham

The conceptualization of the UCD was a direct result of the collaboration with Durham Virtual Urgent Care. Primary Care Network Durham (soon to be a professional non profit association) is the inspiration for the Urgent Care Durham clinic. Many of the primary care doctors, nurse practitioners and clinical leads have participated in biweekly meeting to help plan and coordinate patient care during the Pandemic. The PCND sent a proposal to help digitally triage urgent care visits to the most responsible physician or clinic. This proposal was in collaboration with the LH VUCC and endorsed by the Durham OHT. The Urgent Care Durham was approved for funding in August 2021. Please contact the medical director: Dr. Lubna Tirmizi at: tirmizimd@gmail.com for more information if your clinic would like to partner with the UCD collaborative.
