(CMR) The Health Services Authority (HSA) has announced the opening of the new George Town General Practice (GP) and Public Health Clinics on the second floor of the Smith Road Medical Centre, effective Monday, 11 April 2022.
This is another major initiative this year centered on improving the quality and accessibility to care provided by the organization.
General Practice operations at the main hospital campus will cease as of 4:00 pm on Saturday, 9 April, and resume at the Smith Road Medical Centre at 8:00 am on Monday, 11 April. The new clinic will be for booked appointments only.
The new Smith Road Centre location provides more space and is purpose-designed to meet the needs of our growing and sophisticated patient base who require more services and a better patient experience. An additional Phlebotomy Laboratory will also be located at the clinic so patients can have ease of access to the service should any blood tests be required.
Patients without appointments can access services at the new Urgent Care “Walk-In” Clinic, which will open Monday to Friday from 8:00 am – 8:00 pm and Saturday 8:30 am -1 pm in the Atrium of the main hospital campus.
The Flu Clinic will close effective 9 April, but persons experiencing flu-like symptoms will be able to seek care at the new Urgent Care Clinic.
Urgent Care provides an improved setting. It will improve access to care and ease the Accident & Emergency Unit demand for non-emergent illnesses and injuries, including mild sprains and cuts.
