Temporary Closure at Harwich Hospital, Minor Injuries Unit

With immediate effect, we have taken the difficult decision to temporarily close Harwich Urgent Treatment Centre (UTC) Minor Injuries Unit due to the impact of staff sickness and the need to support staff who are working on the wards. The department will remain closed initially for 2 weeks but this will be under constant review and we hope to open again as soon as practicably possible.

Clacton Urgent Treatment Centre remains open daily 8-8 pm for all minor ailments and injuries (1 Tower Road, Clacton, CO15 1LH). Alternatively, you can seek medical advice and support via 111, who will assess your needs and advise you of the most appropriate service for you as well as arrange an appointment if required.
We will keep you informed of any further changes via our website, Facebook and Twitter and local signage in Harwich Reception area.

We thank you for your patience and understanding with this matter.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
What should I expect?

In the current climate, things are moving so quickly and information is coming from so many different sources that it is difficult to keep up to date and also to understand what information is correct.

 

We wanted to give our patients in north east Essex some clarity regarding expectations when it comes to PPE. 

 

We know that a number of our clinicians have been questioned, when a visiting patient home, as to why they are not wearing a face mask.  A face mask is not required unless the person is symptomatic, that is, they are displaying signs of coronavirus which are:

  • A high temperature
  • A new persistent cough
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste 

 

In order to protect you and our staff, in advance of a home appointment, you may receive a call to ask you a number of questions to assess your current condition, as well as questions about those co-habiting with you.  It is essential to inform us if anyone in the household is self-isolating.

 

Thank you so much for your support in these challenging times.  We are doing our best to ensure the safety of our patients and colleagues alike.
