Blaydon Urgent Treatment Centre will be closed today (Friday 7th October) until further notice, due to an IT issue.
To help cope with these pressures and ensure the people who need care the most can get it the NHS is asking people to:
- Think NHS 111 online or pharmacy first before coming to A&E or calling 111 or 999.
- Visit QE Hospital walk-in centre if urgent
- If you suspect you have Covid-19 stay at home and get a test by calling 119 or visiting www.nhs.uk. You cannot access testing through A&E or GP surgeries.
- Be kind – all our staff are doing their best to look after you, please be patient.
