Harwich Urgent Treatment Satellite Service (Minor injuries)


Harwich Urgent Treatment Satellite Service (Minor injuries)

Urgent treatment centres provide medical help when it’s not a life-threatening emergency. Please consider contacting NHS 111 before attending an Urgent Treatment Centre. A trained call handler could help you receive the treatment you need faster, by directing you to the most appropriate service. This could be an Urgent Treatment Centre, or another service that best suits your need, such as a pharmacy or your GP.

The Urgent Treatment Satellite Service at Fryatt Hospital, Harwich, is a nurse-led service which is open between 9am and 5pm every day including weekends and public holidays, for assessment and treatment of minor injuries such as:

  • wounds
  • sprains
  • strains
  • minor dislocations
  • suspected fractures
  • removal of foreign bodies
  • burns and scalds
  • bites and stings
  • minor head injuries

For any emergency needing urgent or immediate treatment, such as chest pain, severe uncontrolled pain or bleeding, acute shortness of breath or severe injury, you should call 999 or go to the nearest Accident and Emergency Department, which is at Colchester Hospital.
