Changes to walk-in centre at Teddington Memorial Hospital

Walk in Centre change of hours - EXTERNAL.jpg

22 May 2018

  

From 2 July 2018 the Walk-in Centre is changing to an urgent treatment centre 

  • New opening hours will be 8am to 8pm, 7 days a week 

  • After 8pm please call NHS 111

  • Bookable appointments will be available alongside walk-ins for adults and children who may need urgent treatment - NHS 111 may add you to a list for the UTC to call you back if this is the right place for your treatment
  • We are increasing the flexibility of the service, which will be run by GPs and nurses, with other healthcare professionals 

  • They will offer advice and treatment for adults and children with injuries or illnesses that are urgent but not life threatening 

  • The urgent treatment centre will combine the current walk in centre with an extended hours GP service, based in the same location 

  • GP practices will still be able to book appointments for patients with the extended hours GP service if they cannot see them themselves

  • Combining the two services will result in improved GP cover, resulting in better care for patients
