What is a walk-in centre?
Walk-in centres are sites that provide medical attention for routine ailments and injuries. Walk-in centres are popular because you don't need to be registered to recieve treatment.

Can you just go to a walk-in centre?
Yes, provided your local walk-in centre is open, you can go whenever you need to. If you do visit a centre, however, you'll need to make sure you're ariving during opening hours as they can varry from site to site. Another thing to consider is your wait time. You don't need to book an appointment to be treated in a walk-in centre, but if their are a number of other patients who also need treatment, you may have a long wait to be seen by a doctor.
