CLOSED FOR TRAINING EVERY 2 MONTHS

TARGET is a scheme that brings our city’s GPs, Practice Nurses and Health Care Assistants together every two months to learn new skills, hear about new treatments and share good practice.  We think it will mean better services all round – that is what we’re aiming for!
It means that your surgery will need to close for one afternoon every two months but we will ensure that medical care will be available when you need it.  The surgery will therefore be closed on the following afternoons but the Out of Hours service (which can be accessed by calling 111) will cover: 
Wednesday 13 November
Thursday 16 January 2020
Thursday 26 March 2020

The Urgent Treatment Centre (UTC) at the Royal South Hants Hospital offers convenient, fast and expert treatment on a wide range of injuries or illnesses that are not life/limb threatening.

What to know:

The service is led by highly skilled nurses, who are supported by GP’s and other health professionals, who can offer treatment, advice and information for a range of injuries and illnesses that need urgent medical attention, but are not life-threatening. The waiting times can be considerably less than at the emergency department and the UTC team can also refer or direct you to the most appropriate service for you if you need to be seen elsewhere.

You don’t need to make an appointment, the UTC is open to all NHS patients and you can also call NHS 111 before visiting to get an appointment at a specific time.

Opening hours:

Monday – Friday: 7.30am – 10.00pm

Weekends and Bank Holidays: 8.00am – 10.00pm

Last patient accepted at 9.30pm
