St Peter's Hospital
Review of Urgent Treatment Centre - Adult, written by a patient
8th January 2021
I was COVID Positive with a really high temperature. I came to UTC as my own oximeter was showing a low reading. From presenting at the front door of the UTC I was immediately sent round to the side entrance (Presumably for Covid +). The nurse let me in straight away, checked me out and advised I had a high temperature but be blood/oxygen was fine.
I was seen by a doctor who was able to prescribe some additional medication. This was brought to me without delay, I was then discharged.
It was a great comfort to me to be seen as my Covid experience has been pretty tough, so although no "Miracle Cure" it was extremely re-assuring.
We all know the pressures the NHS is under, so is there anything you could have done better? If I was to be incredibly picky I'd say I'd have liked slightly less time from the initial temperature check to seeing the Dr. But really I think I was in / out in about an hour.
