The Urgent Treatment Centre (UTC) at Lymington New Forest Hospital looks after patients with an urgent minor injury or an urgent minor illness which is not critical or life threatening. e.g. sprains, broken bones, bites or stings, ear and throat infections, as well as assessing and treating wounds.
To access the service, call 111 or your GP practice to book an urgent appointment (to avoid waiting to be seen). Alternatively, you can walk-in to the Urgent Treatment Centre at Lymington New Forest Hospital between 8am and 9pm, 365 days per year.
This service is for patients who are suffering from an urgent minor illness which is new i.e. its not a long term condition or illness which the patient has been suffering with for more than a couple of days.
This service can also see patients which an urgent minor injury which is less than two weeks old e.g. fracture, strain or sprain.
We are also only able to see urgent minor illness, meaning patients may want to seek advice from their pharmacist, GP or 111 first to help determine that they require immediate healthcare intervention.
Please also note that the UTC is unable to deal with medical emergencies such as traumatic injuries, chest pain, suspected strokes – please call 999 and seek advice if you think there is a chance that your situation is a medical emergency.
