Plans to open a new centre for non-emergency injuries and illnesses at Southend Hospital in the UK have been delayed because of a National Health Service (NHS) funding shortage.

The hospital was expected to break ground in April but has now been delayed by five months and will open in September in a temporary building next to the accident and emergency department.

The new centre will cater for patients to be seen by GPs and specialist nurses for conditions such as back pain, dizziness, diarrhoea and vomiting, sprains and rashes, providing relief to Southend’s stretched A&E department.

The centre’s planning permission and building design have pushed the date back along with changes in the NHS financial landscape.
