A&E services are changing at Central Middlesex Hospital and Hammersmith Hospital

A&E services are changing at Central Middlesex Hospital and Hammersmith Hospital

On Wednesday 10 September 2014, the A&E departments at Central Middlesex Hospital and the Hammersmith Hospital will close.

Urgent Care Centres at both sites will continue to treat patients with minor illnesses and injuries that are urgent but not life-threatening 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Adults and children can use the Urgent Care Centre for:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Minor burns
  • Cuts
  • Minor infections
  • X-rays

Urgent Care Centres (UCCs) are run by experienced GPs and nurses with skills in urgent care. UCCs are for patients who cannot wait for a GP appointment, but do not need the emergency treatment provided by an A&E. You do not need an appointment to be seen at a UCC.

In an emergency, call 999.

Call NHS 111 if you need urgent medical help or advice, but it’s not a life-threatening situation.
