Stomach, Bowel and Bladder Problems

Stomach, Bowel and Bladder Problems

HCA Urgent Care Centres provide treatment for a wide range of stomach, bowel, liver, kidney and bladder problems. We have access to a large number of specialists and once our initial investigations and treatments are completed we can arrange the most appropriate next step – either reassurance, GP follow-up, specialist review or urgent admission to the HCA UK hospital network for more specialist imaging, treatment or surgery if required.

At the Urgent Care Centre we can deal with a variety of issues within this category – we are happy to see anyone over the age of 16 with any non-life threatening symptoms related to their digestive system or urinary tract.

Some of the common abdominal symptoms our patients present with include:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Bloating
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhoea and constipation
  • Fevers
  • Jaundice
  • Loss of appetite
  • Rectal bleeding

Some of the common urinary issues include:

  • Pain on passing urine (dysuria)
  • Haematuria (blood in the urine)
  • Increased urinary frequency or urgency
  • Urinary retention or poor urinary flow
  • Lower back/loin/kidney pain

A typical visit to Urgent Care will include a detailed history and examination from the doctor who will then perform or arrange the required urgent tests, such as urine dip, blood test, and imaging – such as ultrasound, x-ray, CT or MRI scan. If your condition is found to be more serious, if we are unable to uncover a suitable diagnosis, or you are still concerned we can arrange same-day referral to the appropriate specialist. 

Some of the common conditions we regularly see are:

  • Appendicitis
  • Food Poisoning
  • Hepatitis
  • Diverticulitis
  • Reflux and Stomach Ulcers
  • Bowel Obstruction
  • Gallstones
  • Haemorrhoids
