All our clinics are staffed by experienced GPs. If you need further tests or investigations, or have an injury that needs further treatment, you may be asked to go to your local Accident and Emergency department or be referred to your own GP. The Walk-In centre is intended for the treatment of minor illnesses only and does not have its own diagnostic facilities (like X-Ray or MRI machines) or facilities for blood tests.
If you have a life-threatening medical emergency, are bleeding heavily or think you have broken bones, don't delay: go directly to Accident and Emergency or phone 999. If you aren't sure who can best help you, phone 111 (free call from any landline or mobile) and ask for advice.
For safety reasons, if you need repeat medication, the Walk-in Centre will prescribe a maximum of five days supply, giving you time to request the medicine from your own GP. You will probably be asked to show the doctor your repeat medication form or the box your tablets were in.
Please be aware that there may be a wait to see a GP at peak times. However, in 2015-16, we saw 91% of patients within 90 minutes of registration.
