visited this urgent care centre at Burnley on 3 occasions so far this year with relatives (including children). ON each occasion the waiting time was 3 hours with often only getting to see a doctor after 3.5 or 4 hours. The adult waiting area was full this evening + the children's area was very busy, yet I was told by reception there was only one doctor to see all these people. The people of Burnley were told by this trust that moving the Burnley A&E to Blackburn would result in shorter waiting times at the new urgent care centre in Burnley, clearly this is not the case and I would not by choice advocate using this centre in an urgent situation. very poor.
