Urgent Treatment Centre will be moving to Peterborough City Hospital
The Urgent Treatment Centre (UTC), currently located within the City Care Centre on Thorpe Road in Peterborough, is set to relocate to Peterborough City Hospital on Thursday 1 July, as part of the Trust’s Urgent and Emergency Care Service.
From 1 July, patients with minor illnesses and injuries who cannot be treated at home, by a local pharmacist or their GP, will be seen at the UTC. It will open from 8am to 8pm, seven days a week, as well as seeing the GP Out of Hours operate from the site too.
Phil Walmsley, Chief Operating Officer at North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust, which runs PCH said: “We are really pleased to be opening the new UTC next week. There has been a huge amount of work that has gone into integrating the minor illnesses and injuries unit into our urgent and emergency care provision. This element is part of a much wider piece of work that has already seen us open a new Paediatric Assessment Unit, a Surgical Assessment Unit and change the way we operate in our emergency department. We want to improve patient experience, as well as help patients access the most appropriate healthcare service, first time.”
Patients are being asked to think carefully when deciding which service they need if they are unwell. If you’re unsure which service you should be choosing, please call NHS 111 first for advice.
