Starting May 20th, Crawley Urgent Treatment Centre (UTC) will be open 7:30am to 10:00pm seven days a week. The decision to pilot this temporary change in the opening hours from 24/7 has been made to ensure that safe staffing levels can continue to be maintained.

During opening hours, the Crawley UTC will continue to deliver the full range of services currently available. Patients are encouraged to continue to use the UTC during its operating hours so that they can receive urgent NHS help and support closer to home.

Overnight, the public will be advised to use alternative services such as NHS 111, or in life-threatening emergencies, continue to access emergency departments.

For those requiring life-saving care, emergency departments are available at:

  • East Surrey Hospital, Redhill
  • Princess Royal Hospital, Haywards Heath
  • Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton & Hove
  • Worthing Hospital
  • St Richard’s Hospital, Chichester
