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. You don't need to book an appointment ahead of time or be registed with a doctor at a walk-in centre. Unfortunately, however, walk-in centres may require a long waiting period as you'll need to queue to see a doctor. Push Doctor offers a more convienient solution, allowing you to video call a GP from home.
What services do walk-in centres have?
Walk-in centres provide advice and treatment for a number of minor illnesses and injuries, including:including:-
- Coughs, colds and flu-like symptoms
- Skin conditions
- Stomach upsets
- Asthma and other breathing problems
- Back pain
- Ear, eye and throat infection
- Cuts, strains and sprains
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. Opening hours, however, vary from centre to centre, meaning you’ll need to go at a time when you can be seen. 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.
What's the alternative to a walk-in centre?
For those who don't want to travel and queue in a walk-in centre, there's an alternative. Pushdoctor can connect you with a healthcare expert without the need to visit a centre. We can connect you to a medical proffesional via video calls or text chats to recieve prescriptions and healthcare recommendations, all from the comfort of your home.
