General Stock 3 2016


George Eliot Hospital’s Urgent Care Centre has been re-designated as an Urgent Treatment Centre as part of a new national initiative to standardise and improve the care offered in non-life threatening situations, as set out in the NHS Long Term Plan. 

The newly designated Urgent Treatment Centre now offers appointment bookings via NHS 111 in addition to the normal walk in appointments, giving local patients more convenient ways to access urgent care when they need it most.

All Urgent Treatment Centres across England will need to meet the same criteria and offer the same services, including being required to open for at least 12 hours a day, every day of the year, including bank holidays. This means that patients can be assured of a standardised set of services, wherever they are in the country.

Dr Martin Sandler, Deputy Medical Director at George Eliot Hospital said: “We are pleased that George Eliot Hospital’s Urgent Care Centre has been approved to become one of the the first Urgent Treatment Centre in the local area, and that we will be accepting appointments booked through NHS111.  Our opening hours remain unchanged – from 8am till 8pm - and we will continue to provide advice and treatment on sprains, suspected broken limbs, other minor injuries and children’s ailments.  We will continue to work closely with on-site GPs to deliver the service.”
