UPDATE TO SERVICES
IN ORDER TO FREE UP VITAL RESOURCES AND TO HELP PROTECT OUR PATIENTS, VISITORS AND STAFF, THE FOLLOWING SERVICE UPDATES HAVE NOW COME INTO EFFECT.
The Emergency Department at University Hospital Coventry is no longer treating minor injuries or illness in adults (aged 16 and over).
Coventry Urgent Treatment Centre (CV1 4FS) and Rugby Urgent Treatment Centre (CV22 5PX) will provide these essential services to the community.
Patients attending University Hospital with minor injuries or illness will be re-directed to these facilities.
All other emergency services at University Hospital, including the Children's Emergency Department (ages 0 to 15) will be operating as normal.
Patients who have an eye emergency are being asked not to attend hospital and instead call a specialised number:
02476 964800 or 02476 964802 or 02476 964806 (Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm).
02476 966626 (Saturday 9am to midday)
An expert clinician will offer advice. Anyone who needs support out of hours should telephone 111.
If you have an outpatient appointment scheduled, we will be contacting you to advise if you need to attend.
We may need to arrange an alternative way of speaking to you, such as a telephone consultation, where possible.
Due to the large amount of calls we are currently receiving, please only ring in if you have an urgent query.
Thank you for your cooperation.
