COVID-19 (coronavirus) update
We are currently only dealing with injuries – NOT minor illnesses – to help the city’s health and care system deliver patient care at this challenging time. For an updated list of what we treat, please click here.
Anyone suffering from illness should use e-consult to contact their GP. e-consult can be used via a GP’s surgery website or the NHS app. If patients experience any issues using e-consult they should contact their GP practice.
If you believe you have symptoms associated with COVID-19 – including a new continuous cough and a high temperature – you are advised to stay at home for 7 days. You should not try to book a GP appointment or attend your GP practice, unless your symptoms deteriorate and then you should access the NHS 111 online coronavirus service.
There will be NO testing or treatment available for COVID-19 at the UTC.
At the Royal South Hants Urgent Treatment Centre (UTC) we provide fast, convenient and expert care for any NHS patient with a minor injury that is not life/limb threatening.
Our team of skilled UTC practitioners and GP’s can offer treatment, advice and information for a range of minor injuries. Our waiting times can be considerably less than emergency departments and if we are unable to help, we can refer or direct you to the most appropriate service.
Patients are treated in order of priority rather than order of attendance.
Call NHS 111 before visiting us to get an appointment at a specific time.
*Please note that we are unable to provide clinical advice over the telephone. Calls may be recorded for quality and training purposes.
Monday – Sunday: 8am – 8pm
