Urgent Treatment Centre Open

The first phase of the new Urgent Treatment Centre at The James Cook University Hospital is complete and welcoming patients. Following a very busy few weeks on site with hospital equipment being delivered to site around electricians, joiners, and decorators, the ground floor of the new facility is open and providing treatment for a whole range of minor injuries and illnesses.

Built alongside the hospital’s existing Emergency Department, the new UTC is part of a £9m investment in urgent care services on Teesside that will integrate services, provide care closer to home and ease the pressures on emergency departments.

The UTC ground floor has a dedicated adult waiting area and a separate area for children Moving into the clinical corridor there are nine consulting rooms, one plaster room, one assessment room and ancillary spaces. The ground floor links into the existing emergency departments at the front and the back, achieving a one-way patient flow in line with the client’s requirements.

The first floor of the building, with staff offices, meeting rooms and staff rest area is due to hand over in the coming weeks. Work is continuing on the external cladding and landscaping, with a new lobby entrance due to begin construction in mid-May, and the new internal streaming and triage areas following on after that.

The development, designed by P+HS Architects is being constructed by Geoffrey Robinson.
