HAFSON has received the following clarification, following questions we asked the CCG, about services at the re-opened centres above:
Further information about Hammersmith Hospital Booked Urgent Treatment Centre and Parsons Green Booked Clinic
The Hammersmith Hospital Booked Urgent Treatment Centre (HHBUTC) and Parsons Green Booked Clinic (PGBC) are pre-booked services available to residents with acute minor illness and ailment symptoms i.e. symptoms for less than five days. The types of minor illness and ailments that can be treated at HHBUTC & PGBC include:
- Coughs & colds (not COVID 19). Any Patient with symptoms that possibly could be COVID-19 will need a negative swab in the last 48 hours before they are seen.
- Earache or sore throat
- Diarrhoea and vomiting
- Abdominal pain
- Urinary tract infections
- Skin rashes; allergic reactions; infections and insect bites
- Back or neck pain
- Muscle pain, strains and sprains
- Cuts, abrasions, burns and animal bites,
- Emergency contraception
Babies under 1 month old cannot be treated at either service and pregnant women or children under 12 years old cannot be seen at PGBC as this is a nurse-led service without a doctor on duty.
Anyone requiring repeat prescriptions, reports for insurance/fit to fly, medical certificates, a routine referral to hospital, blood tests, chronic disease management (such as asthma review, blood pressure checks; high blood pressure management), or general oral contraception would see their GP as both HHBUTC & PGBC are unable to provide these services.
We will let our supporters know of any further changes. We have been assured that these are temporary measures because of the Covid crisis.
