Rugby St Cross – Getting The Right Treatment

The Hospital of St Cross and the local Clinical Commissioning Group have joined forces to promote NHS services in Rugby and to guide people to access the right service at the right time.
It’s important that people know where to go when they have a health problem. Accessing the correct service when there is a need will save time and ensure that people receive the most appropriate treatment.
The Hospital of St Cross offers a wide range of services from blood testing to outpatient appointments, and there is an Urgent Care Centre where trained Emergency Nurse Practitioners can deal with less severe illnesses such as suspected broken bones and minor burns.
If the condition is very serious or life threatening, for example a suspected heart attack or severe breathing difficulties, then the person should attend University Hospital in Coventry where the expert knowledge and best facilities to treat serious illness are located. In these cases patients should dial 999 for an ambulance.
