The request was successful.

Dear Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust,

What constitutes capacity at your urgent care centre causing new arrivals seeking treatment to be turned away?

On 7 September 2021, what was the Urgent Care Centre's capacity between 17.15 and its 8pm closure, resulting in my being turned away at 17.15 though only 7 people were in the waiting area?

Were there any new admissions for treatment after 17.15 who were seen?

Yours faithfully,

Margaret Nicol

Dear Sir/Madam,

Please see the information about Urgent Care Centre on the following link:


Also, the UCC runs a virtual queue since Covid 19 – meaning the waiting room is not an accurate representation of patients waiting to be seen.

If you have any other query don't hesitate contact the FOI team.

Kind regards,
