Urgent Treatment Centre

Our Urgent Treatment Centre has been set up to provide the best possible care for patients with minor injuries and illnesses. The unit will help support the Emergency Department (ED) to focus on providing emergency care for life-threatening conditions.

The UTC is equipped to diagnose and deal with many of the most common injuries and ailments that people have when they attend the ED. The service will be provided by emergency practitioners, GPs, emergency medicine clinicians and registered nurses.

The unit is open 24 hours, seven days a week and is accessed next to the Emergency Department at Hillingdon Hospital. 

The UTC service is one option in the wide range of local healthcare services available. These include visiting your local pharmacist, bookable GP services, and GP out-of-hours. If you need medical help, please call NHS 111 first and they will advise and signpost you as needed.

Anyone with serious injuries or a potentially life-threatening medical emergency should dial 999.
