Have your say on plans to develop an Urgent Treatment Centre in North Lincolnshire Posted on 11 Jan 2019

Local people are being given the opportunity to share their views on plans to change the way urgent healthcare services work in North Lincolnshire.

In line with national NHS guidance, NHS North Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is developing plans for an Urgent Treatment Centre (UTC), which will be co-located alongside the Accident and Emergency department at Scunthorpe General Hospital.

The additional, GP-led service will launch at the end of October 2019 and will help safeguard A&E services for those that have a genuine emergency need.

The Urgent Treatment Centre will provide same-day diagnosis and treatment for urgent, but non-life-threatening conditions, such as:

  • sprains and strains
  • suspected broken bones
  • cuts and grazes
  • feverish illness in adults and children
  • abdominal pain

Between January 9th and February 3rd 2019, North Lincolnshire CCG is gathering views from patients and members of the public to help shape the new service.
