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, if you aren’t registered with a local GP, if its out of hours or if your GP is unavailable.

They’re open early till late, including weekends and bank holidays and offer advice and treatment without the need for an appointment.


Nurses at Walk in Centres can offer treatment for minor illnesses and injuries including:

  • Infections and rashes
  • Stomach upsets & vomiting
  • Minor cuts, bruises & burns
  • Strains and sprains
  • Coughs, colds and flu-like symptoms

You’ll be asked about your medical problem when you first arrive at a Walk-in Centre. Patients are treated based on the urgency of their need, so please be aware that during busy times, you may need to wait a little longer.
