This will provide an enhanced offer for people with a condition that needs prompt medical help to avoid it deteriorating, but is not life-threatening.
The Urgent Treatment Centre (UTC) is not a like for like replacement of the Walk In Centre (WIC) at Ashton Primary Care Centre, it is a new, broader and better offer. Being located on the hospital site means the Urgent Treatment Centre (UTC) has direct and prompt access to urgent diagnostics or other hospital services.
