Widnes Urgent Treatment Centre (UTC)

Due to a technical issue, Widnes UTC is currently experiencing intermittent telephone and computer outages.

Until this issue is resolved, a reduced service is in operation.

This means:

  • Waiting and treatment times could be much longer
  • Some patients may be asked to visit other neighbouring UTCs in Runcorn and St Helens

If you are not sure what to do, and it isn’t a 999 emergency, please visit www.111.nhs.uk for help and advice.

Thank you for your understanding.
