Walk in Centres
NHS Walk-in Centres are available if you feel unwell or suffer from a minor injury when you’re away from home or your GP Surgery is closed. Walk-in centres are open seven days a week usually from 8am to 8pm. You can attend any walk-in centre and you don’t need an appointment – you can just turn up.
Walk-in centres can offer treatment for minor illnesses and injuries including: Minor infections and rashes / Stomach upsets / Minor cuts and bruises / Strains and sprains / Coughs, colds and flu-like symptoms. Walk-in centres also provide emergency contraception.
You’ll be asked about your medical problem when you arrive at a Walk-in Centre. Patients are treated based on the urgency of their need, so please be aware that during busy times that you may need to wait.
