The Croydon Urgent Care Alliance (CUCA)
The Croydon Urgent Care Alliance (CUCA) is a new alliance partnership of the following organisations:
- Croydon Health Services NHS Trust (CHS)
- Croydon GP Collaborative (CGPC)
- AT Medics (ATM)
From April 2017 CUCA will combine the skills, expertise and resources of all three organisations (CHS, CGPC and ATM) to deliver the Croydon Integrated Urgent Care Service, achieving, ‘one service, one team, one standard - outstanding quality’.
CUCA is passionate about delivering a dynamic, functionally-integrated service that is locally-embedded and meets the diverse needs of Croydon people. Across our three organisation we have a deep understanding of Croydon and are integral in delivering some of the most important services within the Borough.
We currently deliver:
- Croydon Emergency Department and Edgecombe Unit and employ circa 3640 staff locally, across secondary/community care
- 55 Croydon practices with circa 500 practising GPs, Nurses and support staff
- Croydon Minor Injury Units (MIUs) with circa 300 staff
We are also working closely with the Croydon Accountable Provider Alliance (APA) and the South West London Urgent Care Network, to transform ‘whole system’ urgent care delivery. Our approach to delivering this service is underpinned by a robust Workforce Strategy for an accessible, patient-centred, integrated service that meets/exceeds the vision set out by our commissioners, NHS Croydon Clinical Commissioning Group.
