July 25, 2016

In advance of the upcoming holiday, the Bermuda Hospitals Board has reminded everyone of the opening hours of the Lamb Foggo Urgent Care Centre in St David’s and the approximate wait times at the KEMH Emergency Department.

The BHB said, “Bermuda Hospitals Board [BHB] wishes the public a happy and safe holiday weekend. However, if medical care is required, the Lamb Foggo Urgent Care Centre [UCC] in St David’s will be open from 4pm to midnight on Thursday and Friday, and from noon to midnight on Saturday and Sunday.

“Please note that if your condition is serious, you should go straight to the Emergency Department of King Edward VII Memorial Hospital [KEMH]. There are very limited diagnostic imaging [x-ray] and laboratory testing capabilities at the UCC.

“The UCC offers services to assess and treat minor illnesses or injuries that need immediate attention, but are in no way life threatening and are not likely to need surgery or sophisticated diagnostic equipment. This includes sprains, strains, scrapes, cuts, coughs, colds, earaches, bumps and bruises.
