Please see below a statement from Anglian Community Enterprise (ACE) regarding the temporary closure of the Harwich Urgent Treatment Centre (UTC) Minor Injuries Unit.


With immediate effect, we have taken the difficult decision to temporarily close Harwich Urgent Treatment Centre (UTC) Minor Injuries Unit due to the impact of staff sickness and the need to support staff who are working on the wards.

The department will remain closed initially for 2 weeks but this will be under constant review and we hope to open again as soon as practicably possible.

Clacton Urgent Treatment Centre remains open daily 8-8 pm for all minor ailments and injuries (1 Tower Road, Clacton, CO15 1LH). Alternatively, you can seek medical advice and support via 111, who will assess your needs and advise you of the most appropriate service for you as well as arrange an appointment if required.

We will keep you informed of any further changes via our website, Facebook and Twitter and local signage in Harwich Reception area.

We thank you for your patience and understanding with this matter.
