What is a walk-in centre?
A walk-in centre is an alternative to visiting a GP or hospital, offering treatment to minor inguries and sicknesses.

Push Doctor offers a more convienient solution, allowing you to video call a GP from home.

Can you just go to a walk-in centre?
Yes, you can visit a walk-in centre without any previous notice or booking in advance. They do, however, have specific opening times, meaning you won't be able to recieve out-of-hours treatment.
